Miniscrews have proven to be a useful addition to the orthodontist's armamentarium for control of skeletal anchorage in less compliant or noncompliant patients, but the risks involved with miniscrew placement must be clearly understood by both the clinician and the patient. Complications can arise during miniscrew placement and after orthodontic loading in regard to stability and patient safety. This article presents a case report of peri-implantitis around an orthodontic miniscrew implant treated with Erbium, chromium, yttrium, scandium, gallium, garnet (Er,Cr: YSGG) laser.
