Modern Treatment Advances Using Palatal Anchorage – Register Today
We cordially invite you to attend the 2018 “Modern Treatment Advances Using Palatal Anchorage” lecture which will be held on Friday 31st of August and Saturday 1st September 2018.
The small size of orthodontic mini-implants permits insertion in a variety of sites, in particular the alveolar process.
However, due to the varying bone quality and the risk of root contact, the survival rate of implants inserted in the alveolar ridge still needs improvement. Other regions, such as the anterior palate and the mental region provide much better conditions for TAD insertion, since the amount and quality of the available bone is far superior. Mini-Implants with different types of abutments and connectors allow the construction of versatile and cost efficient appliances for a large variety of orthopaedic and orthodontic applications.
Utilising TADs in the anterior palate and the mental region eliminates the risk of root injury and takes the implants out of the path of tooth movement. The design of the interchangeable abutment system provides the orthodontist with a skeletal anchorage system that integrates easily into clinical practice and allows treatment of cases that were difficult or impossible to treat previously.
