Aim: To describe and illustrate the use of a two-part osseointegrated implant that is placed in the palate to serve as anchorage. Methods: After implant placement and osseointegration, the implants are connected to the teeth by means of transpalatal bars. When molar stabilization is necessary during premolar, canine, and incisor retraction, the transplatal bar is placed on the molars. When molar distalization is required, the transpalatal bar is connected to the first premolars. Results: During premolar, canine, and incisor retraction, the implant-supported molar position was stable. During molar distalization, the implant-supported premolar position remained stationary. Conclusion: Implants provide the ability to establish stable, or absolute, anchorage with no patient cooperation. World J Orthod 2002;3:125134.
