The questionnaire consisted of six parts, containing multiple-choice questions. Practice characteristics, treatment planning, practice management, miniscrew placement, miniscrew complications and failures were assessed. All statistical analyses were performed using Excel and taking percentage of each question. The overall response rate was (85 %). Most of the respondents (81 %) reported using miniscrews for orthodontics treatment. Indirect anchorage for space closure was the most commonly reported treatment indication (51 %), followed by Intrusion for anterior open bite (40 %) and Anterior en masse retraction (34 %), The most commonly reported biological, mechanical, or iatrogenic complications of mini-screw treatment most commonly were screw loosening (61 %), followed less commonly by soft-tissue overgrowth/irritation (61 %), and irritation caused by auxiliary springs (40 %). Conclusion Most orthodontists in Baghdad uses Miniscrew Implant, most common uses of miniscrew implant are indirect anchorage for space closure, intrusion for anterior open bite and anterior en masse retraction, most common guide that helps in placement of miniscrew implant is OPG, most common complication for using miniscrew implant are miniscrew loosening, soft-tissue overgrowth/irritation and irritation caused by auxiliary springs.
