Nonextraction treatment of Angle Class II malocclusion usually requires distalization of maxillary molars. The major drawbacks regarding extraoral appliance is totally rely on patient cooperation. More recently, researchers have tried to defeat this major problem by introducing new intraoral systems involving rigid skeletal anchorage. The intraoral molar distalization process has been an excellent choice for patients who are reluctant to wear a headgear. This review article elaborates about the role of molar distalization in orthodontics.
Key terms: Molar distalization, class II malocclusion, Intraoral.
