Abstract
Purpose: Unlike standard dental implants, the stabilization of orthodontic microscrews removed after treatment is done without osseointegration and achieved by several components: cortical bone thickness (CBT), microscrew geometry, and drilling depth. The purpose of this study was to evaluate 10 different microscrews and the influence of their geometric parameters with different CBT and drilling depths. Materials and Methods: The influence of geometric parameters in cortical bone was analyzed wi...
