Lecture title: Class II Correction with Microimplant-Supported Molar Distalization

Lecture abstract:

Over the past decade, the use of anchorage screws is becoming a standard practice in orthodontics. The growing interest for microimplants is confirmed by the amount of recent published articles in the literature.

The potential use of microimplants has been demonstrated repeatedly during orthodontic treatment with fixed appliances for different types of movement, especially for molar distalization.

Their use allows to make corrections of Class II malocclusions by avoiding extraction of premolars, decreasing the need for surgery in specific cases, and reducing patient compliance while keeping usual goals of treatment.

During this presentation, clinical cases will illustrate our therapeutic approach in Class II situations.
