Featured review: Mandibular molar uprighting using orthodontic miniscrew implants: a systematic review

© Magkavali-Trikka et al, 2018A tipped mandibular molar usually occurs after premature loss of adjacent teeth, leading to the inclination of the molars. Tilted molars can cause numerous problems in a patient’s mouth, especially if a prosthetic rehabilitation is planned. Periodontal status can be aggravated, with signs of inflammation, angular bone loss and an apparent pocket at the mesial surface of a tipped mandibular molar. However, molar uprighting into its correct position leads to the normalization of the functional and periodontal condition.

Magkavali-Trikka et al conducted a systematic review to identify studies and present the use of miniscrew implants (MIs) as an alternative treatment to mandibular molar uprighting

Aims and scope

Progress in Orthodontics is a fully open access, international journal owned by the Italian Society of Orthodontics and published under the brand SpringerOpen. The Society is currently covering all publication costs so there are no article processing charges for authors.

It is a premier journal of international scope that fosters orthodontic research, including both basic research and development of innovative clinical techniques, with an emphasis on the following areas:
• Mechanisms to improve orthodontics
• Clinical studies and control animal studies
• Orthodontics and genetics, genomics
• Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) control clinical trials
• Efficacy of orthodontic appliances and animal models
• Systematic reviews and meta analyses
• Mechanisms to speed orthodontic treatment

Progress in Orthodontics will consider for publication only meritorious and original contributions. These may be:
• Original articles reporting the findings of clinical trials, clinically relevant basic scientific investigations, or novel therapeutic or diagnostic systems
• Review articles on current topics
• Articles on novel techniques and clinical tools
• Articles of contemporary interest

Submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by at least two referees.
