Sampling was done through consecutive non probability sampling technique and sample size was calculated using WHO calculator for health studies, based on a previous study by Hooman et al21 assuming 10 % of external apical root resorption in maxillary central incisors in patients with orthodontic treatment in which a sample of 240 maxillary incisors were the minimum for providing reliable results at 95%confidence level and 0.05 level of significance.

PAOO as a surgical intervention creates an osteoporotic situation that is conducive for rapid orthodontic tooth movement, induced within the alveolar bone without increasing the risk of apical root resorption. The alveolar bone can be simultaneously augmented and reshaped.
Because the apical foramen may not correspond to the anatomic root apex, but may be coronal to it, as the course of resorption progresses, it is advisable to maintain a working length 2-3 mm short of the radiographic working length in order to prevent overextension through the apical foramen, especially in teeth exhibiting signs of apical root resorption. In the present study, the length of the filling was assumed as acceptable when the score 2 and score 3 was observed.
