Abstract

In orthodontic treatment, uprising versed molars always has been a challenge due to the need of a solid anchorage. Multiple methods have been described in the literature and one of the most revolutionary solutions is the miniscrew. It provides an anchorage without interfering with global teeth movements during orthodontic treatment.
Multiple locations can be used to place a mini screw. It depends on the tooth (initial position, angulation) and the anatomical environment, which should be deeply studied.
In this case report the Retro molar region was used as insertion site to up rise the second mandibular molar in the context of an orthodontic treatment.
