Molar uprighting is an important adjunctive treatment in orthodontics: repositioning the tilted molar eliminates the potentially pathologic condition and simplifies the ultimate restorative procedure. Although various methods for molar uprighting have been applied successfully, they still have some limitations and disadvantages in tooth movement. This article reports on a new clinical technique for molar uprighting with nickel-titanium springs based on a setup model. Two patients treated with this system are shown.
