The upper incisorstorque expression is essential for the orthodontic treatment accuracy.Various orthodontic devices areclaimedtohavedifferentinclinationcontrolcapacity.Thepurposeofthisretrospectivestudywastocomparetheradiographic buccolingualinclinationof upperincisorsinpatientstreatedwith three differentorthodontictechniques.Material andMethods. Conventional brackets (Victory, 3M), self-ligating appliances (Damon Q, Ormco), and aligners (Invisalign, Align Technology) were tested. Cephalometric data of 25 patients with similar skeletal and dental pretreatment parameters were collected for each technique.Position changesof upper centralincisorswere assessed with radiographic evaluationbefore and after therapy.Three different parameters were considered: 11∧SnaSnp, 11∧Ocl and I+ TVL.
