Molar Distaliser

Indications:

Class II molar relationship and/or anterior crowding.

 

Case Details:

13 year old patient with space loss in the upper buccal segments and asymmetric Class II molars.

Treated by extraction of UR4, UL4, LL5, fixed appliances and Infinitas anchorage in both right quadrants.

 

Key Points:

2 mini-implants (2mm diameter, 6mm length, long neck) inserted lateral to the mid-palatal suture

No anchorage loss since the distaliser excludes anterior tooth contacts.

Avoids palatal tissue irritation since there's no Nance button.

Distaliser is used for anchorage reinforcement once Class I molars achieved.
