Alignmen of Teeth by Driftodontics: A Case Report
Keywords:Driftodontics, Crowding, Extraction
Physiological tooth movement or driftodontics of teeth in extraction space decrease the amount of mechanotherapy during clinical orthodontics. This is especially helpful in young patients with anterior mandibular crowding. We present a case of 13-year-old girl with severe crowding in the lower arch and moderate crowding in the upper arch. Anterior crowding in mandibular arch was relieved by driftodontics after extraction of first premolars and placement of lingual arch to prevent molar mesialization.
