Microimplants usage has revolutionized the clinical orthodontic practice over last few years. Their diverse clinical applications and ease of usage has simplified orthodontic cases requiring maximum anchorage. Their application in minor tooth movements for facilitation of prosthodontic restoration in overerupted or drifted teeth without usage of orthodontic brackets will soon find favour with other dental specialties.
