Two patient therapies introduce the use of miniscrew anchorage in adult patients for the correction of mild to moderate occlusal plane canting without severe facial asymmetries. A miniscrew implanted in the infrazygomatic buttress was used as anchorage for intruding the overerupted maxillary quadrant. As unilateral intrusion of maxillary posterior teeth will develop a posterior unilateral open bite, box elastics were subsequently used to extrude the opposing teeth in the mandibular arch. These treatments show that miniscrew anchorage offers a simple, efficient method of correcting occlusal plane canting and mild facial asymmetries. World J Orthod 2006;7:269278.
