Pages: 233238

Aim: To demonstrate the use of the air-rotor stripping technique for conservative treatment of malocclusion. Methods: Necessary space was created using air-rotor stripping. Class III malocclusion was treated with a fixed mandibular appliance, Class III traction, and a maxillary Essix appliance for anchorage. Results and Conclusion: It was demonstrated that airrotor stripping is a suitable option in the treatment of malocclusion. Overbite and overjet were increased to acceptable relationships in 15 months. The air-rotor stripping technique is a conservative and predictable treatment option, which can be used for correction of mild to moderate crowding, as well as for some cases of Class II and Class III malocclusion.
