Temporary anchorage devices popularly called mini-implants or mini-screws are the latest addition to an orthodontist's armamentarium. The following case report describes the treatment of a 16-year-old girl with a pleasant profile, moderate crowding and Class II molar relationship. Maxillary molar distalization was planned and mini-implants were used to preserve the anterior anchorage. After 13 months of treatment Class I molar and canine relation was achieved bilaterally and there was no anterior proclination. Thus mini-implants provide a viable option to the clinician to carry out difficult tooth movements without any side effects.
