Classification Case report
Recently, dental mini-implants, miniplates, and miniscrews have been used as skeletal anchorage. Skeletal anchorage provides stationary anchorage for various tooth movements without the need for active patient compliance and with no undesirable side effects. Titanium miniscrews especially have gradually gained acceptance for stationary anchorage because they provide clinical advantages such as minimal anatomic limitations on placement, lower medical costs, and simpler placement with less invasive surgery. In this case, we demonstrate a simple and fast method that can be used to correct molar scissors bite with the use of miniscrews.
