Abstract
Self-drilling orthodontic mini-implants can be used as temporary devices for orthodontic treatments. Our main goal was to evaluate surface characteristics, roughness and wettability, of surface modified mini-implants to increase their stability during orthodontic treatment without inducing bone fracture and tissue destruction during unscrewing.; Modified mini-implants by acid etching, grit-blasting and its combination were implanted in 20 New Zealand rabbits during 10 weeks. After that, the bone...
