Abstract
Placing orthodontic mini-implants allows clinicians to use simple and esthetic appliances to retract anterior teeth. This usage is reported here in a patient with lip protrusion and mild crowding. The anterior teeth were splinted on the lingual side and retracted by an elastomeric chain connected to orthodontic mini-implants without the use of an archwire or brackets. After space closure, brackets were bonded for detailing individual teeth. The desired movement of the anterior teeth was achieved by changing the application point of the retraction force and adjusting the line of force.
