Implant Anchorage and CAD-CAM Technology: A Match Made In Heaven
Treatment approaches involving skeletal anchorage are a staple of contemporary orthodontic care. Mini-implants and skeletal fixation have minimised the requirements for extra-oral appliances, provided support for the biomechanical basis for selective tooth movement, and reduced the need for adjunctive surgical address of complex malocclusions.
The orthodontic profession continues to make significant advances with the development and incorporation of various digital technologies including 3d digital casts, individual bracket-setups, aligners and customized archwires. The evolution of this progress has been adapted to three-dimensional printing of traditionally laboratory custom-made appliances. This presentation will explore various treatment strategies using skeletal fixation and CAD-CAM technology to realise specific treatment strategies.
