OBJECTIVES Implant stability is primarily related to local bone density; Few studies have evaluated interradicular bone density related to mini-implant placement for orthodontic anchorage. Therefore, this study evaluated bone density differences between interradicular sites. SETTING AND SAMPLE POPULATION Computed tomographic (CT) images were obtained from 14 males and 14 females (mean age 27 years, range 23-35 years). Bone density in Hounsfield units (HU) was measured at 13 interradicular…

Evaluation of alveolar cortical bone thickness and density for orthodontic mini-implant placement

Alveolar cortical bone thickness and density were greater in males than in females, in mandible than in maxilla, in the posterior region than the anterior, in oral than buccal side, and adults show a thicker alveolar cortex bone than adolescents.

The Measurements of Maxillary Alveolar Bone Density at 13 - 15 Years Age by Using Spiral Computerized Tomography

Evaluating gender, side and site differences in the bone density at various orthodontic implant sites for the maxillary alveolar bone showed that there were no significant differences between males and females and between the left and right sides.

Bone density determination for the maxilla and the mandible in different age groups by using computerized tomography (Part I)

When mini implants are indicated, no gender and side differences affect the success rate regarding bone density; while age and area should be considered when selecting and placing mini implants for orthodontic anchorage.

Relationship between Cortical Bone Thickness and Cancellous Bone Density at Dental Implant Sites in the Jawbone

Cancellous bone density and cortical bone thickness varies by implant site in the four regions of the jawbone in this study and the cortical and cancellous bone of a jawbone dental implant site should be evaluated individually before surgery.

Comparison of cortical bone thickness and root proximity at maxillary and mandibular interradicular sites for orthodontic mini-implant placement.

Cortical bone thickness depends on the interradicular site rather than sex or individual differences, and is thicker in the maxilla while thickness in the mandible exhibited a gradual anterior to posterior increase.

Variations in crestal cortical bone thickness at dental implant sites in different regions of the jawbone

The dental CBCT data demonstrate that crestal cortical bone thickness varies markedly between dental implant sites in the four regions of the jawbone.

Evaluation of palatal bone density in adults and adolescents for application of skeletal anchorage devices.

Palatal bone densities were significantly higher in adults than in adolescents, and the anterior palatal areas of adolescents were of similar values to those at the posterior palate of adults.

Bone Density Level Difference between Maxillary and Mandibular 2nd Premolar and 1st Molar in Iraqi Adults with Class I Occlusion

Compared of the bone density between two points within alveolar bone to decide which one was more reliable for insertion of mini-implant, it was concluded that the alveolars bone density increased from the alvesolar bone crest toward the basal bone.

Can cone beam CT predict the hardness of interradicular cortical bone?

The mandible parameters spread over a wider range than the maxilla, and reliance on HU values as a predictor of cortical bone hardness should be considered with caution.

A descriptive tissue evaluation at maxillary interradicular sites: Implications for orthodontic mini‐implant placement

Given the limits of this study, mini‐implants for orthodontic anchorage may be well placed with equivalent bone‐implant contact anywhere within the zone of attached gingiva up to 6 mm apical to the alveolar crest with adequate interradicular space.

Bone density assessments of dental implant sites: 1. Quantitative computed tomography.

QCT results demonstrated that bone densities may vary markedly when different areas of a designated implant site are compared, and the importance of the use of radiographic methods prior to implant placement that allow topographically precise assessments of bone density in the region of interest is emphasized.

Trabecular alveolar bone in the human mandible: a dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry study.

The intra-alveolar trabecular bone of these 21 mandibles is affected by the same local and systemic influences as cortical bone, whereas the infra- alveolartrabecULAR bone is mostly sensitive to dental status.

Bone classification: an objective scale of bone density using the computerized tomography scan.

The results of an extensive analysis of computerized tomography scans using Simplant software demonstrate that an objective scale of bone density based on the Houndsfield scale, can be established and that there is a strong correlation between bone density value and subjective quality score.

A prospective study of the risk factors associated with failure of mini-implants used for orthodontic anchorage.

The results confirmed the effectiveness of orthodontic mini-implants, but in certain situations adjustment of the treatment plan or modifications in the technique of implant placement may lead to improved success rates.

Clinical Suitability of Titanium Microscrews for Orthodontic Anchorage—Preliminary Experiences

The tested miniscrews with a diameter of 1.6–2 mm and a length of 8–10 mm proved suitable for orthodontic anchorage purposes, Whereas larger implants need a relatively extensive bone supply and the insertion sites are limited, microscrews offer a more flexible range of applications.
