With the advances of dental implants, temporary skeletal anchorage devices have now become established orthodontic anchorage aids and launched a new era for clinical orthodontic therapy. Nowadays, orthodontic miniscrews are commonly used in daily practice and demand great stability and high predictability for therapeutic needs. In recent years, numerous publications have investigated multiple factors affecting success rates of orthodontic mini-screws. The aims of this review were to investigate the relationships between timing of loading and implant stability, and the impact of osseointegration on orthodontic mini-screws.
