A stent fabricated on a selectively colored stereolithographic model for placement of orthodontic mini-implants

Noriyuki Kitai, DDS, PhD, Yoshitaka Yasuda, DDS, PhD, Kenji Takada, DDS, PhD

The purpose of this report is to present a new method for placing orthodontic mini-implants using a stent fabricated on a selectively colored stereolithographic model. A stent was fabricated that incorporated a guide groove drilled in accordance with the planned direction of the mini-implant. Tooth crowns, gingiva, tooth roots, and the maxillary sinuses were clearly identified in the stereolithographic model. As a result, the stent could be fabricated while taking into account the anatomic characteristics of both the bone interior and the dental surface. A stent fabricated on the selectively colored stereolithographic model is suggested to be a promising device for guiding placement of orthodontic mini-implants adjacent to the tooth roots and the maxillary sinuses.
