Abstract

Micro-osteoperforation (MOPs) is a procedure based on sound bone biology principles that has been developed to address the growing demand for rapid orthodontic treatment, especially by adult patients. This is a safe, minimally invasive technique that can be used in conjunction with any orthodontic appliances, not only to accelerate tooth movement, but in many other clinical situations, namely to change the type of tooth movement or create differential anchorage. Here we summarize MOPs indications and describe all of the steps required for safe and comfortable application of MOPs during orthodontic therapy.
