Abstract
Background. Researchers have conducted extensive studies regarding dentoalveolar factors that affect anterior dental aesthetics; however, there is no consensus regarding how these factors affect orthodontic treatment decisions. Methods. A systematic search of electronic databases was conducted to develop a list of key aesthetic factors for use in analysis of photos of 60 children (23 males, 37 females) having received Phase I orthodontic treatment with the Xbow appliance. Logistic regression was used to determine which factors related to a patient's likelihood of receiving further orthodontic treatment. Results. Only the angulation of the right maxillary incisors was significantly related to a patient's likelihood to proceed to Phase II orthodontic treatment following Phase I orthodontic treatment with the Xbow appliance. Other factors demonstrated trends but were not statistically significant. Conclusions. Angulation of the maxillary right incisors is the most significant factor influencing orthodontic treatment decisions, however other factors may also be important.
