Maxillary molar distalization has been used in orthodontics for over 100 years. This technique has been used to gain space in the maxillary arch for relief of crowding, correction of a Class II molar relationship and reduction of an increased overjet. A plethora of appliances have been developed over the years with each having advantages and disadvantages. This article details the indications and contra-indications for maxillary molar distalization and details the various appliances that are available to clinicians, presenting the
available evidence supporting the use of these various appliances.
