OBJECTIVE To test the hypotheses that pitch and fluting have no effect on the primary stability of miniscrew implants (MSIs). MATERIALS AND METHODS Maximum placement torque and pullout strength of experimental MSIs were compared with those of control MSIs with the use of synthetic and cadaver bone. MSIs with 1.00 mm pitch were compared with those with 1.25 mm and 0.75 mm pitch; MSIs with three longitudinal flutes were compared with the same MSIs without flutes. A total of 60 MSIs (15 of each… CONTINUE READING
