Osteocalcin and serum insulin-like growth factor-1 as biochemical skeletal maturity indicators

Background With change in concepts of growth determination methods, there is a surge in the measurement of biomarkers for appraisal of growth status. Osteocalcin is a bone-specific protein and was observed to parallel the normal growth curve. Hence, the present study was intended to assess the levels of serum osteocalcin and serum insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and compare...

Serum IGF-1, IGFBP-3 and their ratio: Potential biochemical growth maturity indicators

Background Determination of skeletal maturation and remaining growth potential is an essential part of treatment planning in orthodontics. The aim of our study was to determine the relationship between IGF-1 levels, IGFBP-3 levels with CVM staging to track the pre pubertal and pubertal growth spurts in female patients in North Indian population. Methods This cross-sectional study...

Evaluation of orthodontic mini-implant placement: a CBCT study

Background Optimal positioning of orthodontic mini-implants is essential for a successful treatment with skeletal anchorage. This study aims to compare the accuracy of two-dimensional radiographs with a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) for mini-implant placement. Methods An ideal site for mini-implant placement at the buccal interradicular space between the second premolar...
