BACKGROUND During the last 5 years, anchorage control with self-tapping miniscrews has become an important part of the clinical management of orthodontic patients. Yet, no studies have been performed for measuring mechanical properties of the currently available systems. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study is the evaluation of mechanical properties of three commercially available self-tapping screw systems used in orthodontic treatment. MATERIALS three systems with a 1.5 mm diameter and 11… CONTINUE READING
