The thread consist of its root diameter, its thread diameter, its pitch, and its lead. The tip of the screw is either round or self-tapping. The primary function of a bone screw is to produce compression in bones which is required to replace a bone injury. A screw converts all the forces that arise out of bone movement into compression.

Screws helps in attaching implants to bones or anchorage or in fixation of soft tissue.
