INTRODUCTION Mini-screw implants (MSIs) hold great potential for enhancing intrusive mechanics applied to multiradicular teeth. This experimental study used various force magnitudes to evaluate (1) the stability of immediately loaded MSIs, (2) the amounts of tooth intrusion produced, and (3) the amounts of root resorption produced. METHODS By using a split-mouth repeated-measures design, intrusive forces were applied for 98 days to the mandibular second (LPM2), third (LPM3), and fourth (LPM4… CONTINUE READING
