Miniscrew-supported coil spring for molar uprighting: Description

Antônio Carlos de Oliveira Ruellas, Matheus Melo Pithon, Rogério Lacerda dos Santos

Introduction: Since the beginning of miniscrews as orthodontic anchorage, many applications have been described in the literature. Among these, one is the uprighting of mesially inclined molars. In regard to the mechanical aspects, however, there is little information about the application of orthodontic forces using such devices. Objective: The objective of this study was to describe a miniscrew supported spring for uprighting of mesially inclined molars. With this device, one can achieve the correct use of orthodontic biomechanics, thus favoring more predictable tooth movements and preventing unwanted movements from occurring.

Keywords: Molar tooth. Corrective orthodontics. Dental implant.
