A shortened orthodontic treatment period is the demand of the modern era. Various methods, namely corticotomy, micro-osteoperforation, distraction, etc., have been implored to achieve a quicker tooth movement. Our report presents a comparison of periodontal and dentoalveolar distraction techniques done using a modified HYRAX as distractor in contralateral arches of the same patient. Results showed that the canine was retracted in 13 days on the periodontal distraction side and in 16 days on the side of dentoalveolar distraction. Hence, it can be concluded that the distraction technique significantly reduces the treatment time duration.
