Contemporary applications of orthodontic implants, miniscrew implantsand mini plates
Author: Moschos A. Papadopoulos
Publisher: Elsevier Health Sciences
The book offers a comprehensive and critical review which presents not only the principles and techniques involved in the use of skeletal anchorage techniques and devices (such as orthodontic implants, miniscrew implants and mini plates), but also the scientific evidence available regarding the use of these contemporary applications and their clinical efficacy. • Provides an introduction to the conventional and noncompliance treatment of Class II malocclusion • Provides an introduction to the use of skeletal anchorage reinforcement approaches in orthodontics • Outlines the clinical considerations required for the use of skeletal anchorage devices in orthodontics • Explains the insertion and removal procedures of orthodontic implants, miniscrew implants and mini plates • Discusses the use of orthodontic implants for the treatment of Class II malocclusion • Explains the use of mini plates and zygomatic anchorage for the treatment of Class II malocclusion • Discusses the use of mini-screw implants for the treatment of Class II malocclusion • Explains the use of skeletal anchorage reinforcement of the noncompliance devices used for the treatment of Class II malocclusion • Explores the efficiency of skeletal anchorage and its risk management

Advanced oral and maxillofacial surgery encompasses a vast array of diseases, disorders, defects, and deformities as well as injuries of the mouth, head, face, and jaws. It relates not only to treatment of impacted teeth, facial pain, misaligned jaws, facial trauma, oral cancers, jaw cysts, and tumors but also to facial cosmetic surgery and placement of dental and facial implants. This specialty is evolving alongside advancements in technology and instrumentation. Volume 1 has topped 132,000 chapter downloads so far, and Volume 2 is being downloaded at the same pace! Volume 3 is basically the sequel to Volumes 1 and 2; 93 specialists from nine countries contributed to 32 chapters providing comprehensive coverage of advanced topics in OMF surgery.
Anchorage control is one of the most challenging tasks in orthodontic treatment. Many different types of appliance are used to control anchorage, but an excellent outcome may be difficult to achieve owing to either poor mechanics or inadequate patient compliance. Recently, temporary skeletal anchorage devices (TSADs) have become popular in orthodontics. Some orthodontic movements that are now possible using TSADs were previously considered almost impossible with traditional orthodontic appliances. Several different types of TSAD are currently available, and in choosing between them orthodontists are obliged to rely on the information provided by manufacturers, which is often not based on scientific evidence. This book therefore presents the various design characteristics of TSADs and provides up-to-date scientific evidence to assist orthodontists in selecting the best TSADs for their patients.
