  1. *denotes interactions between factors.
  2. Results of the four-factorial ANOVA which was used to investigate the impact of the factors treatment complexity/severity of malocclusion (S1, S2), appliance type (Incognito/WIN), sex (f = 0,m = 1), and age group (0 = <=16, 1= >16 years).
  3. There was a significant influence of severity of malocclusion and type of appliance, but no other significant effect or interaction between any investigated factors.
