Various miniplate measurements

Variable Value
PH (mm) 11.42 ± 2.05
PD1 (mm) 2.01 ± 0.43a
PD2 (mm) 2.23 ± 0.38b
PA (°) 54.16 ± 11.55
MA (°) 140.77 ± 8.41

Values are presented as mean ± standard deviation.

Paired t-test was performed.

PH, vertical distance from the cementoenamel junction to the center of the miniplate anchoring screw (MPAS) at position 1; PD, distance from the outer surface of the labial cortical bone to the tip of the MPASs at positions 1 (PD1) and 2 (PD2); PA, angle of the miniplate placed on the mandibular symphysis; MA, angle made by the two tangents, with one from the most prominent midpoint of the chin and the other from the prominent point on the buccal root surface.

a,bStatistically significant differences between PD1 and PD2; p < 0.05.
