Topic: Who places miniscrews?
Posted: Friday, June 6, 2008 9:33:49 PM
We use TADs extensively in our office, but we do not place them ourselves. We send them to the oral surgeon.

For us, it is a financial issue. We don’t want to charge our patients any more than we currently do, and we believe that patients view it differently if the fee for the TADs is being paid to someone else. If we lived in a different socio-economic area, I would probably place them myself.

We send a recent pano and a plaster model with marks indicating ideal placement. If the surgeons are unable to place it where indicated, they must call our office before placement. Also, we indicate to the surgeon what our treatment plan is and exactly how we will be using the TAD(s).
