Mini implants were introduced as a means of precisely controlling tooth movements during some orthodontic treatment for correcting bite problems which otherwise would require orthognanthic surgery. Mini implants also known as temporary anchorage device are small titanium bone screw or stainless steel bone screw which are either placed in buccal alveolar bone or palatal side for active space closure.
