Who, in the course of orthodontic treatment, has not been faced with the harsh reality of lost anchorage?
What orthodontist has not wished to have the ability to control orthodontic tooth movement in every type of situation in order to focus exclusively on the treatment aims?
Within this book are the keys to success!
More than any other innovation, mini-screw implants have made a major contribution in recent years to the ongoing development of orthodontic concepts.
For the first time, it is possible to overcome the limitations related to anchorage, avoid the need for patient cooperation, and offer new treatment options that were unthinkable just a few years ago.
Drawing on the early pioneering work of teams such as the one led by Kyung, and by increasing the number of indications, the authors very quickly came to define mini-screw-supported biomechanical protocols for every type of malocclusion.
Today, a deeper understanding of their impact on diagnosis, treatment strategies, and biomechanics is enabling these new treatment modalities to become even more effective. Clearly defined indications, codified protocols, and reproducible therapeutic efficacy and clinical results have now turned mini-screws into a full-fledged treatment system.
