The control of anchorage is one of the most crucial factor in orthodontic treatment planning. Traditionally, headgears have been used to be one of the most efficient means to gain anchorage but they have their own limitations and so these methods are limited in delivering results, which commensurate with our idealistic goals. Recently, a number of case reports have appeared in the orthodontic literature documenting the possibility of overcoming anchorage limitations via the use of temporary anchorage devices-biocompatible devices fixed to bone for the purpose of moving teeth. Although skeletal anchorage is here to stay in orthodontics, there are still many unanswered questions. So the purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the current status of orthodontic implants and a discussion of established techniques.
