Potential side effects induced by Carriere Distalizer. A1, B1, C1, D1, and E1 pre-treatment intraoral photos. A2, B2, C2, D2, and E2 intraoral photos taken after 4 months of treatment with Carriere Distalizer. The intermaxillary elastics supported by Carriere Distalizer and lower lingual holding arch or clear retainer may result in extra space distal to maxillary lateral incisors (A2, C2, and D2), extrusion of maxillary canines (B2, C2, and D2), and worsening in arch length discrepancy in the mandibular arch (E2-lower right buccal segment)
