Instructions for patients after placement of orthodontic mini-implants

Hygiene is fundamental to the success of the treatment!

What should I expect after the placement of an orthodontic micro-screw?

  1. The procedure is totally pain free because it is carried out under local anesthesia.
  2. The same day of the placement, you will notice slight discomfort (like you had a small sore on your gums).
  3. The day after the placement you should not notice any discomfort at all.
  4. If there is pain the next day after the placement, contact your orthodontist right away (very rarely occurs).
  5. The orthodontic micro-screw or orthodontic mini-implants is intended for very short-term use; if one is lost during treatment, there is no problem to simply replace it with another one.

Instructions for patients after placement of micro-screws:

  1. Take the medication prescribed by your orthodontist (usually non-steroid anti-inflammatories).
  2. Use a gel and/or mouthwash with 0.2% Clorhexidina for 2 or 3 days.
  3. The micro-screw must be brushed very well without fear of it falling out; especially brush the area where the micro-screw meets the gum.
  4. Brush the rest of your teeth as you usually do.
  5. The orthodontic mini-implant cannot be felt; only if hygiene is poor, the gum around the mini-implants becomes inflamed and this may cause discomfort.
