The use of mini-implants for anchorage needs in modern orthodontic practice has become an important tool for the orthodontist. In general, the most prevalent asymmetries in the dental office are dental, caused by abnormal tooth eruption, premature loss of deciduous or permanent teeth, crowding and other factors. The extra-alveolar screws have revolutionized Orthodontics because they allow the application of multi-vector forces in cases that require corrections of asymmetries in Orthodontics. The present article describes some possibilities of the use of the extra-alveolar mini-implants in the corrections of the most common asymmetries to the orthodontists.
