JAIMES-MONROY, Gustavo et al. Mechanical and non-mechanical orthodontic procedures in relapse and retention: scoping review. Rev Fac Odontol Univ Antioq [online]. 2020, vol.32, n.2, pp.82-96. ISSN 0121-246X.


stability after orthodontic treatment is an important goal for orthodontists. This issue has been highly important in orthodontics, so its progress and content require constant analysis.


a panoramic and analytical review of citations and keywords from Web of Science helped create a body of information on the current advances in research on this field.


several fields of research arise from the analysis, dealing with surgery as an approach, molecular concepts, orthodontists’ experiences in professional practice, and the use of lasers and other applications.


information on relapse and retention within orthodontics is still valid and requires further research on current issues to understand this complex phenomenon for both academia and clinical use.

Keywords : orthodontics; literature review as topic; orthodontic appliances; orthodontic retainers.
