OBJECTIVE To analyze the mechanical effects of the length and the various shapes such as cylindrical shape, taper shape, and dual-thread shape on the insertion and removal torque of mini-implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS Mini-implants (diameter 1.6 mm and length 6 mm and 8 mm) consisting of cylindrical, taper, and dual-thread groups were inserted and removed in Sawbones while measuring the torque and time. Mechanical analysis was done of maximum insertion torque (MIT), maximum removal torque… CONTINUE READING
