Show Summary Details


Unilateral tip-back mechanics are challenging because of a number of undesirable side-effects associated with their use during orthodontic treatment. The purpose of this paper is to review the differential diagnosis and treatment planning of Class II subdivision malocclusions and present a treatment strategy based on a careful biomechanical analysis of the clinical situation. Emphasis is placed on the correction of molar axial inclination using unilateral tip-back moments in the treatment of dental asymmetries. Appliance design and treatment sequencing are also discussed.
