Offers the very latest on the theory and practice of integrating mini-implant techniques into clinical practice
This all-new second edition of The Orthodontic Mini-implant Clinical Handbook provides a thoroughly revised and expanded update to the theoretical and practical aspects of using mini-implants in orthodontic practice. Taking a practical step-by-step approach with hundreds of clinical images, it presents updated clinical techniques and new clinical cases, covering all topics of importance for utilising mini-implants. It also includes a new chapter on mini-implant anchored maxillary expansion appliances.
It begins with a chapter that looks at mini-implant principles and potential complications, before moving onto clinical and design factors for maximising mini-implant success. Other chapters cover incisor retraction; molar distalisation and protraction; intrusion and anterior openbite treatments; bone anchored rapid maxillary expansion; orthognathic surgical uses; and ectopic teeth.
