Since the publication of the original research on micro-osteoperforation performed at NYU1, the clinical application and acceptance by practitioners of the system has grown significantly. It has proven to be useful in both proactive and reactive clinical applications for orthodontic cases being treated with fixed brackets or clear aligners. This course will review the evolution of the system, the biology behind it, the logistics of its use, and its clinical applications. Several cases highlighting the effectiveness and limitations of micro-osteoperforation in orthodontics will be presented.
