Abstract

Using a 0.028 stainless steel wire, an appliance was fabricated to fit from the distal aspects of the laterals to the mesial side of the maxillary molars where it floats freely. Interarch Class II elastics with the potential of 16 ounces of force were used from the hooks to the lower first molar. The appliance was worn approximately 6 weeks to distalize the maxillary molar.
