    Introduction: Ensuring adequate anchorage is often challenging in orthodontics because many of the various methods developed for reinforcing anchorage depend on patient compliance. The introduction of skeletal anchorage with mini screw implants, which is widely used in orthodontic treatments for expanding the boundary of tooth movement and has no patient compliance requirements. Many factors should be kept in mind when choosing the placement sites like soft tissue anatomy, inter radicular distance, sinus morphology, nerve location and buccolingual bone depth. Adequate bone at mini-implant placement site can influence the success or failure of anchorage. Hence, it is imperative to measure the thickness of the bone. The palatal area considered as the best anchorage site in the maxilla because it composed of dense cortical bone, also the hard and soft tissue guarantees t.. Read More»
