Various methods of gaining space in the arch may be obtained by number of means including reproximation, expansion ofthe den Lal arches, extraction of certain teeth, distalization of canine and molars, uprighting of molars, derotation of posterior teeth and proclination of anteriors. Distalization of molars is the procedure where molars are moved posteriorly by using removable or fixed intraoral orthodontic appliances or extraoral orthopedic appliances. This article reviews the various molar distalizer, the best time for molar distalization and the current distalizer designs also.
