Orthodontic Miniscrew Implants book cover

Orthodontic Miniscrew Implants

Clinical Applications

Orthodontic movements that are considered difficult to accomplish with traditional methods can be achieved with minimal patient cooperation by using miniscrew implants. This book brings together the knowledge and experience of leading experts from Korea and focuses on the clinical applications of the miniscrew implant providing an easy step-by-step guide to this emerging and effective means of treatment. Highly practical in approach, the book demonstrates how miniscrew implants can be used to simplify orthodontic treatment and address more complex cases that have traditionally presented considerable challenge to the practitioner.
