This one day course will show an overview of the up to date literature, current developments of screw design, appliance designs, main indications, placement techniques, and risk factors during placement and orthodontic treatment. It will especially focus on the success rate of mini-implants, palatal implants and miniplates and the biomechanics of the connected orthodontic appliance. The lecture will show scientific and clinical perspectives on how mini-screws can become a safe and reliable standard device.
The course will also give a detailed and picture full explanation of the clinical use of palatal mini-implants and various miniplates in the mandible. It will focus on the biomechanics of well working and thought indications.
