Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose.Zora Neale Hurston
This is a short blog post announcing the publication of our latest research article; a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis entitled: Is Piezocision effective in accelerating orthodontic tooth movement: A systematic review and meta-analysis. Birthed through the enormous collaborative efforts of colleagues Dr. Samer F. Mheissen (Syria) – the instigator and review coordinator – and Dr. Haris Khan (Pakistan), I’ve had the great pleasure of being a co-author on this project.
This research article is published in PLoS ONE; the peer-reviewed, high impact factor scientific journal.
As stated in the OBJECTIVE section of the article; this meta-analysis aimed at critically assessing currently available evidence regarding the overall effectiveness of Piezocision in accelerating orthodontic tooth movement, as well as the adverse effects of this intervention in orthodontic patients.
I’ll leave you to read and reflect on the article without further elaboration, should you be interested in the topic. You can view the link to this publication – as well as other articles and free eBooks – in the eBooks section of this blog, or you can go directly to the publication’s page on PLoS ONE by clicking here.
We hope it will be of use and benefit to those who are interested in the topic of orthodontic tooth acceleration, among others.
