MINI IMPLANT: Removal of pin palatinal in maxilla

The OrthoEasy® pin can be removed without anaesthesia. After disassembling the connecting elements from the head of the miniscrew, place the blade and turn to the left.

Whereas the pin is unscrewed manually from the bone on the vestibular side, removal of the pins inserted in the palate requires the use of the angled piece.

Depending on how well the pin is integrated in the tissue, unscrewing may prove slightly difficult initially. After rotation of approx. 5°, the miniscrew can then be unscrewed easily from the bone. The residual hole does not require further wound treatment. As a rule, the defect in the mucosa is already closed within two days.
