DENTAL INTRUSION: Use of mini-implants for molar intrusion - Animated video


Overeruption of maxillary molars because of the loss of opposite teeth creates occlusal interferes and functional disturbances.


To restore proper occlusion, intrusion of the overerupted molars becomes essential before multidisciplinary reconstructive dental approaches can be initiated.


Posterior intrusion is one of the most diffi cult tooth movements in orthodontics, because of the multiple molar roots. Intrusion requires more alveolar bone reaction as well as a longer treatment time. 

The use of orthodontic mini-implants simplified the treatment plan and allowed maximum conservation of tooth structures.


The following video shows the mechanics of using mini-implants to achieve molar intrusion.
