Irwansyah, M., Erwansyah, E. 2011. Penilaian tingkat keberhasilan perawatan ortodontik dengan piranti lepasan berdasarkan indeks PAR Assessment of success rate of orthodontic treatment using removable appliance based on PAR index. Journal of Dentomaxillofacial Science 10(3): 144-150.

The success of orthodontic treatment, particularly with removable orthodontic appliances not only relies on the
expertise of the clinician, but also highly depends on the patient's own. It is necessary to know the extent of the
success rate of an orthodontic treatment. Assessment of malocclusion severity and treatment outcome has become a
very popular object of research conducted by the PAR index. This study aims to determine the success rate of
orthodontic treatment with removable appliances based on PAR Index. The research was carried out on March-May
2011 with samples of patients dental models who had completed orthodontic treatment in the year 2008-2011 at the
Department of Ortodonsia RSGMP UNHAS. Sixty six pairs of dental models fulfilled the inclusion criteria and the
rules of PAR Index. Percentage change in PAR score obtained by 35% in the assessment with no weighted and 36%
was assessment by weighted. This results showed the level of orthodontic treatment success include into the
category of "no change", but with a trend into the category of "a change "with a significant value ρ = 0.000 (ρ <
0.05). It was concluded that there was occlusion improvements in orthodontic treatment with removable appliance,
although very low and therefore need evaluation and improvement of governance maintenance carried out.
