Jacob A. Salzmann Award Lecture - Miniplate Skeletal Anchorage: An Update and New Perspectives


May 4, 2019 8:00am ‐ May 4, 2019 9:00am

Description

Over the last 2 decades skeletal anchorage has widened the scope of moving teeth. Because of the limited surgery, miniscrews became very popular. However, inserted at the labial site, they limit the movement of adjacent teeth, and in the palate they are commonly used as indirect anchorage. More recently they are also used for bone supported rapid maxillary expansion.

Miniplates resist higher forces and are labially inserted at a distance from the teeth. That makes them more suitable for class II orthodontics, class III orthopedics, and complicated orthodontics in combination with orthognathic surgery.

An update will be given on our latest insights in biomechanics, treatment outcome, and some new perspectives for the future.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define indications for miniplate anchored orthodontics and orthopedics.
  • Evaluate the outcome of bone anchored class II orthodontics and class III orthopedics.
  • Improve the outcome of miniplate anchored orthodontics.
