Abstract

This case report describes the treatment of a 25-year-old woman with a skeletal Class I pattern and moderate bimaxillary dentoalveolar protrusion. The orthodontic treatment included distal movement of her maxillary and mandibular dentitions using 1-stage miniscrews. The total active treatment time was about 12 months. Her tooth alignment and profile were significantly improved by the orthodontic treatment. The 2-year posttreatment records show a stable occlusion and satisfactory facial esthetics.
