The use of miniscrew implants to obtain absolute anchorage has recently gained popularity in clinical orthodontics. The temporary uses of these implants and a simple insertion procedure have increased their popularity, establishing them as a necessary treatment option in complex cases that would have otherwise been impossible to treat. The aim of this review is to present and discuss the development, clinical use, sites of placement, insertion, loading and removal techniques of the mini-implants used for skeletal anchorage. Lastly, the advantagesand potential complications accompanying their use are presented.
