Distalizers

Distalization is used to create a class 1 molar relationship. The Pendulum family of appliances, Distal Jet and the Inman Molar Distalizer using the Inman Power Component are very popular appliances used for this purpose. Each of these appliances allow for unilateral or bilateral distalization. An expansion screw can be added to many of these appliances to prevent a cross-bite from developing.
