September 2017 Issue Highlights COMMENTARY The Possibility of Skeletal Anchorage THOMAS D. CREEKMORE, MICHAEL K. EKLUND Apr. 1983 Dr. Björn Ludwig writes the commentary on this landmark 1983 JCO article by Creekmore and Eklund. The authors’ vision of skeletally anchored tooth movement, here using a surgical vitallium bone screw inserted just below anterior nasal spine, has since been validated through the application of modern titanium miniscrews in a variety of locations.
