Introduction

The objective of this case series was to show how only one miniscrew can be used to treat simultaneously or successively canine impaction and different malocclusions.

Material and Method

Three patients aged of 13 years old who had malocclusions, such as Class II, overbite and canine impaction, were each one treated with the same miniscrew throughout the treatment period. Palatal miniscrews were placed mesially to the first molar and used as a direct or indirect anchorage depending on the moment of the treatment.

Conclusion

In each case, satisfactory treatment was obtained with correction of overbite, class II malocclusion and canine impaction. The first steps of treatment were aesthetic for the patient and did not require patient cooperation.
