Very recently skeletal anchorage with MINI-SCREWS has been validated as a safe and effective clinical procedure in orthodontics.
The application of the screws in the patient’s mouth is simple and do not required any surgical skill. The long term
stability is predictable and reliable, while the removal does not require anestesia and do not leave any modification to the tissues.
The mini-screws have brought a great impulse for totally avoid patient’s compliance in all different kind of orthodontic movements,
and have solved the problems related to the control of dental anchorage.
