Mini/micro screw implantation for orthodontic anchorage [IPG238]

Measuring the use of this guidance

Recommendation: 1.2

During the consent process clinicians should ensure that patients understand that there is a failure rate associated with the use of mini/micro screws and that the success of dental alignment cannot be guaranteed. They should provide patients with clear, written information. In addition, use of the Institute's information for patients ('Understanding NICE guidance') is recommended.
