The aim of this study was to identify the procedures adopted by Brazilian orthodontists in the following
situations: extraction space closure, anchorage control in case of necessary anchorage for group A and frequency
of skeletal anchorage use, especially in the upper jaw. Method: A questionnaire was sent to the e-mail address of all
dentists registered in the Brazilian Federal Council of Dentistry. Results: The results showed that most Brazilian orthodontists
usually perform extraction space closure by means of sliding mechanics. The use of palatal bar, inclusion of
second molars in the archwire and space closure performed in two phases are the most used techniques for anchorage
control in the upper jaw. The skeletal anchorage is referenced by 36.5% of specialists as a routine practice for the upper
jaw anchorage. Conclusions: There is a wide variety of procedures adopted by Brazilian orthodontists for orthodontic
space closure and anchorage control.
