INTRODUCTION The purposes of this study were to determine the ideal sites for placement of orthodontic mini-implants in mandibular interradicular spaces by using computed tomography (CT) and to suggest length, diameter, and angulation of the mini-implants. METHODS CT scans were performed on 15 dry human mandibles with 1-mm tomography slices. Measurements… CONTINUE READING
