A tipped mandibular molar usually occurs after premature loss of adjacent teeth, leading to the inclination of the molars. Tilted molars can cause numerous problems in a patient’s mouth, especially if a prosthetic rehabilitation is planned. Periodontal status can be aggravated, with signs of inflammation, angular bone loss and an apparent pocket at the mesial surface of a tipped mandibular molar. However, molar uprighting into its correct position leads to the normalization of the functional and periodontal condition.
Magkavali-Trikka et al conducted a systematic review to identify studies and present the use of miniscrew implants (MIs) as an alternative treatment to mandibular molar uprighting
