Temporary implants can be placed for orthodontic purposes. These can be used to move the teeth more quickly or to move them in ways that traditional orthodontics have found difficult or impossible.
The implants consist of tiny titanium screws that can be placed with local anesthesia. Of course, if the patient wants to be asleep for the procedure we can accommodate their request but it is nice to know that it is a relatively easy procedure.
There are a few different versions available that enable us to provide the orthodontist with the type of device he or she wants.
