|Gummy Smile Orthodontic Treatment||Procedure: Upper first premolars extractions Procedure: Upper second premolars extraction||Not Applicable|
Seventy-six subjects who met the inclusion criteria were divided into one of 3 groups according to their treatment modalities as follows: group 1: upper first premolars extraction (24 patients, aged 21.56±3.19 years); group 2: upper second premolars extraction (26 patients, aged 22.16±3.59 years) and group 3: no orthodontic intervention was performed (happy with their teeth) (26 subjects, aged 20.45±3.29 years).
Initial records (radiographs, study casts and clinical photographs) were taken for all subjects. The same records were taken post treatment for treated subjects only. The Pre- and post- treatment VGD and lip length in static and dynamic positions and the amount of upper teeth retractions were recorded.
The paired t-test and ANOVA test were used to detect treatment changes and differences between studied groups, respectively. Factors affecting VGD were investigated using backward stepwise linear regression analysis.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||76 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Intervention Model Description:||Group 1: upper first premolars extraction (24 patients) Group 2: upper second premolars extraction (26 patients) and Group 3: no orthodontic intervention was performed (happy with their teeth) (26 subjects).|
|Masking:||Single (Outcomes Assessor)|
|Masking Description:||Study casts and cephalometric analysis were performed by different person (D. T.) who did not know to which group the patient belongs. Records were given numbers.|

Experimental: Upper first premolars extraction
Included 24 patients (7 males,17 females) with a mean age of 21.56±3.19years who were treated with fixed orthodontic appliance for 2.22±0.31years.
Procedure: Upper first premolars extractions
Fixed orthodontic treatment with upper first premolars extraction and space closure using 0.019X0.025 SS AW and elastic chain.
Experimental: Upper second premolars extraction
Included 26 patients (8 males,18 females) with a mean age of 22.16±3.59years who were treated with fixed orthodontic appliance for 2.25±0.30 years.
Procedure: Upper second premolars extraction
Fixed orthodontic treatment with upper second premolars extraction and space closure using 0.019X0.025 SS AW and elastic chain.
No Intervention: No intervention
Included 26 subjects (10 males, 16 females) with a mean age of 20.45±3.29years.This group was included to observe any changes in the vertical gingival display over the 2 years' observation period (1.65±0.17 years).
- The amount of pre- and post-treatment vertical gingival display in static and dynamic positions. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]Measured from the lower edge of the upper lip to the gingival margins of the incisors in mm.
- Pre- and post treatment Nose-U-lip-length [ Time Frame: 2 years ]Measured from the soft tissue subnasale to the upper lip stomion (base of the nose to the lip edge of the upper lip) in mm.
- Upper anterior teeth retraction [ Time Frame: 2 years ]The amount of upper anterior teeth edges' retraction on cephalometric superimposition in mm
- Upper incisors extrusion [ Time Frame: 2 years ]The amount of upper incisors edges vertical displacement on cephalometric superimposition in mm
- Upper molars protraction [ Time Frame: 2 years ]The amount of upper molars protraction measured from the mesial contact point of the molar in the baseline model to the mesial contact point of the transposed transparent model(S1) in mm
