Conventional molar distalization methods in maxillary arch require patient cooperation with headgear or elastics, which is really difficult. Therefore, numerous different intraoral procedures have been presented to reduce the need for patient cooperation. In line with such attempts, our aim is to present an implant-supported appliance for successful unilateral molar distalization. To this purpose, we used an appliance that was supported by two palatal implants. Treatment outcomes were assessed by making use of lateral cephalometric views and dental models. Findings suggest that our implant-supported appliance is effective in correcting unilateral class II molar relationship with minor side effects compared to other distalizing appliances.
