The objective of this course is to learn the essential concepts to be successful in the selection of mini implants, to learn the safest insertion procedures based on the knowledge of anatomy and finally to improve the skills in the design of efficient biomechanics using mini implants.

Knowledge of the fundamental concepts and techniques will improve your skills
in the placement and management of TADs.


Knowing in detail each of the anatomical structures available for the placement of TADs, give us the confidence to perform procedures in a simple and safe way.


There are anatomical limitations that, in occasions, do not allow us to apply the forces where it is required. Therefore, biomechanical adaptations must be made to apply forces efficiently while avoiding unwanted effects.


The selection and placement of TAD`s depends on the characteristics of the anatomical structure where it will be placed and the design of the biomechanics to be applied.


6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
The Rosen Centre Hotel - Orlando, FL


In the anatomy module, the available structure for the placement of mini implants, their closest structures and the most relevant morphological characteristics will be reviewed.
The criteria for selecting mini implants based on anatomy and biomechanics will also be studied.
9:00 - 12:00 am
  1. Classification of anatomical structures according to their location and bone density.
  2. Anatomical structures available in the upper jaw and adjacent noble structures.
  3. Anatomical structures available in the lower jaw and adjacent noble structures.
  4. Anatomical structures available in the palate and adjacent noble structures.
  5. Characteristics of the mini implant and selection criteria
2:00 - 5:00 pm
  1. Insertion procedures related to anatomical structures.
  2. Factors affecting mini implants stability.
  3. Anatomy, insertion procedures and mini implant characteristics "Hands On".


The design of biomechanics based on treatment objetives, allows to apply forces efficiently controlling the unwanted effects.
9:00 - 12:00 am
  • Force system design according to treatment goal.
  • Two vector mechanics as a strategy in the treatment with mini implants.
  • Biomechanical effect of the mini implants on bone structures
  • Biomechanics "Hands On".
  • Clinica applications:
    - Class II malocclusions
    - Class III malocclusions
    - Impacted Teeth
    - Dentofacial Orthopedics

ABOUT orlando

Orlando is one of the most-visited cities in the world primarily driven by tourism, major events, and convention traffic; in 2018, the city drew more than 75 million visitors. The two largest and most internationally renowned tourist attractions in the Orlando area are the Walt Disney World Resort, opened by the Walt Disney Company in 1971, and located about 21 miles (34 km) southwest of downtown Orlando in Bay Lake, and the Universal Orlando Resort, opened in 1990 as a major expansion of Universal Studios Florida and the only theme park inside Orlando city limits
