The resistance to extraction of temporary anchorage devices (TADs) depends on various factors, including miniscrew design, shear strength, and bone density. This research introduces the thread shape factor (TSF) as a new factor for the evaluation of TAD mechanical properties. The authors evaluated three TADs for a total of 27 tests: Mini-impianto autoforante (Leone, 1.75 mm diameter and 8 mm length), Orthoscrew (Leader Ortodonzia, 1.65 mm diameter and 9 mm length), and MAS (Miniscrew Anchorage… CONTINUE READING
