The Miniscrew-Anchored Cantilever: A Simple Molar Distalizer

LORENA VILANOVA DDS, MSc, PhD, JOSÉ FERNANDO CASTANHA HENRIQUES DDS, MSc, PhD, MAYARA PAIM PATEL DDS, MSc, PhD, ROBERTO HENRIQUE DA COSTA GREC DDS, MSc, PhD, ARON ALIAGA-DEL CASTILLO DDS, MSc, PhD

A device for “noncompliance” Class II treatment is easily constructed by attaching an .040" cantilever wire between a miniscrew and a molar headgear tube. Distal force is obtained from a nickel titanium closed-coil spring, while the direct skeletal anchorage prevents unwanted side effects on the anterior teeth.

EDUARDO FRANZOTTI SANT’ANNA DDS, MS, PhD, DANIELA GOMES DE RESENDE AZEVEDO DDS, MS, RODRIGO LOPES DE LIMA DDS, MS, PhD, MÔNICA TIRRE DE SOUZA ARAÚJO DDS, MS, PhD, AMANDA CUNHA REGAL DE CASTRO DDS, MS, PhD

Impacted upper incisors in the early mixed dentition are challenging to treat, especially when associated with dilaceration. This case is managed by orthodontic space opening, followed by traction of the impacted incisor into the arch and then conventional four-second-premolar extraction treatment.
