Background: Mini-screw implants are a compliance-free alternative to more traditional
forms of incisor intrusion. Hence; the present study was undertaken for assessing the clinical
success of Miniscrew Implants for Orthodontic Treatment.Materials & methods:The present
study was undertaken for assessing the clinical success of Miniscrew Implants for
Orthodontic Treatment. A total of 30 patients scheduled to undergo mini-screw implants as a
part of orthodontic treatment were enrolled. Complete demographic details of all the patients
were obtained. A Performa was made and thorough details of the clinical examination of all
the patients were recorded. All the surgical procedures were carried out under adequate septic
conditions. All the patients were recalled on follow-up and success rate was assessed.
Results:Maxillary arch was involved in 70 percent of the patients. In the present study,
clinical success rate of mini-screw implants was 96.67 percent. Significant results were
obtained while comparing the success rate and failure rate. Conclusion: Miniscrew Implants
for Orthodontic Treatment are accompanied by high success rate.
