OSCAR ANTELO DDS, MS, THIAGO MEIRA DDS, MS, CAIO MIYOSHI DDS, LARA GUIMARÃES DDS, MS, ORLANDO TANAKA DDS, PhD

BENEDICT WILMES DMD, MSD, PhD, UWE SCHUMANN DMD, DDS, DIETER DRESCHER DMD, MSD, PhD

Drs. Wilmes, Schumann, and Drescher developed this technique to facilitate lower molar mesialization in a patient with more than one missing tooth. A mini-implant of intermediate size serves as a pier to stabilize the archwire and provide anchorage control.
