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: Oral rehabilitation was completed with the placement of a lower cast partial denture replacing the missing lower molars (Figures 6, 7, and 8). Even though implant supported fixed crowns were suggested as a better option, the patient opted for a cast partial denture due to her time constraints and financial limitations.
