  • Abstract

    Implants are used to augment anchorage in orthodontics. They serve as temporary anchorage devices (TAD). They are used to preserve anchorage particularly in complicated tooth movements with different prescriptions of fixed orthodontic appliances. The multitude of problems encountered requires an array of designs of the TAD. The purpose of this review was to indicate the various mini implant designs to suit requirement in orthodontics with respect to the surgical procedures and healing time, biomechanics and forces, loading time, implant maintenance, post-treatment consideration, and disadvantages. It also focuses on the different designs that cater to address malocclusions in different situations. It can be concluded that mini implants are an excellent adjunct to provide stable, bone-based anchorage for the application of orthodontic biomechanical force systems when strict biological considerations are adhered.
