A step-by-step plan should be followed in a complex orthodontic case to eliminate complications. In the beginning of this case, a 30 year old female with bilateral mandibular first and second molars missing received implantation (Ankylos) at #46 bone ridge without orthodontic consideration. Three months later, she asked for orthodontic treatment to correct bimaxillary protrusion. A new treatment plan was made and the mandibular first premolars had to be extracted. Microimplants (Abs Anch) were used to offer anchorage for canine distal drive and anterior retraction. Low hysteresis arch wire (0.18 inchX0.25 inch) was applied to maintain arch form and resist inclination. Orthodontic treatment was eventually finished and prosthetic restoration of the implant was complete. Clear overlay retainers were delivered for both arches to maintain the outcome. Patient was satisfied with the result of altered treatment plan.
