2018 Annual Session Conference

Predictable Maxillary Molar Distalization with Micro-implant Anchorage in the Correction of Class II Malocclusion

May 5, 2018 3:45pm ‐ May 5, 2018 4:30pm


Distalization of maxillary molars is a viable option for the correction of class II malocclusion. This presentation will include temporary anchorage devices using buccal and palatal micro-implants as well as micro-implant supported conventional appliances like Distal Jet and pendulum for the distalization of molars using the concept of absolute anchorage.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyze non-compliance maxillary molar distalization techniques including buccal and palatal micro-implants, using the concept of absolute anchorage.
  • Recognize Insertion sites, placement technique and anchorage/force application of micro-implants for upper molar distalization, retraction of pre-molars, canines and incisors.
  • Evaluate strategies to combat side effects, post-distalization mechanics and finishing the occlusion after molar distalization.
