Aim: To explore a successful, much simpler, less cumbersome, and time-consuming technique for mini-implant placement.
Materials and Methods: Crimpable hook, intraoral periapical radiograph, 15 number surgical blade.
Results: Very simple and efficient technique for mini-implant placement.
Conclusion: The proximity of roots in mandibular arch is major risk factor for placements of mini-implants. With the help of this technique, the proper direction and orientation of the miniimplant to be placed can be evaluated.
Clinical significance: There is no additional armamentarium required for this technique with the least clinical time for the operator providing a very efficient way for mini-implant placement.
Keywords: Anchorage, Mini-implant, Orthodontic treatment, Temporary anchorage device.
