Mini-implants: new possibilities in interdisciplinary treatment approaches.

Sebastian B - Case Rep Dent (2014)

Bottom Line: The limits of fixed orthodontic treatment have become more a matter of facial appearance than anchorage.Many complex cases which would previously have required surgery or functional appliances can now be treated with fixed appliance therapy using mini-implants.A mutilated dentition case where mini-implants were used to provide anchorage for intrusion of molars and retraction of anterior teeth is reported here to illustrate this point.

ABSTRACT
The introduction of mini-implants has broadened the range of tooth movements possible by fixed appliance therapy alone. The limits of fixed orthodontic treatment have become more a matter of facial appearance than anchorage. Many complex cases which would previously have required surgery or functional appliances can now be treated with fixed appliance therapy using mini-implants. A mutilated dentition case where mini-implants were used to provide anchorage for intrusion of molars and retraction of anterior teeth is reported here to illustrate this point.

Mentions: A twenty-one-year-old female reported to the hospital for correction of protruding front teeth and replacement of missing lower back teeth. She had a Class I incisor relationship on a Class III skeletal base with an average maxillary-mandibular plane angle and increased lower face height (Figure 1). Intraoral examination revealed proclined upper anterior teeth and supraerupted upper first molars and upper right second molar due to missing lower first molars and lower right second molar (Figure 2). Bolton analysis showed a mandibular anterior tooth material excess of 1.8 mm.
