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.
