Share Abstract:


Larry W. White, DDS, MSD

This mini-implant, developed by Birte Melsen, professor and head, Department of Orthodontics at the School of Dentistry, Aarhus, Denmark, has expanded the limits of orthodontics by providing unmovable anchorage and also serves as anchorage for areas lacking teeth or teeth without adequate periodontium. Mini-implants can also help clinicians and patients avoid more invasive surgical procedures. With mini-implants, orthodontists are limited only by their own imaginations. These helpful microscrews have a self-threading design that require no drilling, have a shallow learning curve, and orthodontists can place them with a minimum armamentarium. Clinicians can also load them immediately after placement. Those interested in more information about these splendid adjuncts to orthodontic therapy can find it at www.aarhus-mini-implant.com. Also at this site are patient treatments, articles, and distributors for the Aarhus Mini-Implants.
