Several methods have been suggested in order to distalize maxillary molars in patients with Class II malocclusion. A simple iritraoral fixed appliance for quick simultaneous distalization of both first and second maxillary molars is presented in this article. The appliance is easy to fabricate, costs less than other similar prefabricated appliances, and it can be used bilaterally or unilaterally.
