ORTHODONTICS : Reasons for mini-implants failure: choosing installation site should be valued!

Dental implants conceptually required months for crown placement and functional recovery. 

It was believed that it took weeks or months for cells to colonize the implant surface, produce matrix and mineralize it by efficient osseointegration.

Science developed and now it is possible to apply a functional load nearly immediately after implants are placed, provided that they are mechanically interlocked in a previously mineralized bone. 

Appropriate mechanical interlocking between implant and bone surfaces allow mini-implants to withstand masticatory forces while gradual osseointegration occurs. 


The type of bone and clinical condition will determine whether immediate-load implants are recommended or not.

Absolute anchorage during orthodontic treatment may be obtained with mini-implants or miniplates placed in thick cortical bone and dense trabecular bone.
