Uprighting of molar using NiTi springs, derived from the setups, with customized resin bases were successfully treated using mini-implants between first and second premolars for indirect anchorage.
With the advent of use of mini-screws as anchorage, molar uprighting procedures have become simpler, with more predictable results and better control of undesirable effects.
