Surgical miniscrew assisted orthodontics; changes in facial appearance and smile of an adult female: A case study
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Rajib K Seal and Dr. Srijani Sarkar
ABSTRACT:Proclined upper incisors are the reasons for lip incompetence, excessive incisor display and very unesthetic smile characters for a good number of patients seeking orthodontic treatment. Majority of these cases are treated following extraction of premolars and intrusion and retraction of incisors, which became much more feasible through usage of temporary anchorage devices like miniscrew implants. Before titanium orthodontic miniscrew were available in the market, surgical screws for fixation of bone-plates were started to be used for orthodontic anchorage. This article presents a case to show how surgical miniscrews can be utilized to intrude and retract severely proclined upper incisors to bring upon noticeable improvement in facial appearance and smile.
