Micro-screws are a common element of bone anchorage in modern orthodontics. Their clinical application, in situations involving anchorage loss or orthodontic movements in which conventional anchorage is ineffective, has constituted a major step forward for our profession. As a result, it is extremely important to have knowledge of the fundamental aspects of micro-screws and their use in clinical practice.
Theoretical part: biological bases, anatomy applied to placement, types of micro-screws, indications for use and biomechanical bases applied to placement and use.
