Show Summary Details



Class II molar relationships can be corrected by several methods. In previous systems, orthodontic forces have been applied to crowns and distal movement of the first molar has mainly been by tipping and a rotation of the crowns. A new Lingual distalizer (LD) has recently been developed to distalize the maxillary molars without the drawbacks of previous appliances. The lingual distalizer is relatively easy to insert, is well-tolerated, does not require patient co-operation and is aesthetic. It distalizes molars without loss of anchorage and moves them with bodily translation.
