Implants have revolutionized the field of orthodontics by providing infinite or absolute anchorage. This new treatment approach has widened the therapeutic possibilities of orthodontic treatment. The science of biomechanics remains a mainstay of clinical orthodontics. The biomechanical variations with force application are significant when comparing conventional and mini-implant orthodontics. In order to fully exploit the potential of mini-implants, adequate knowledge of biomechanical principles and their modification in relation to mini-implants is imperative. This case report presents extraction space closure with temporary anchorage devices and describes biomechanical variations required in different clinical scenarios.
