The rise of the soft tissue paradigm has led to the rise of nonextraction therapy in orthodontics. Molar distalization is a key aspect in nonextraction therapy as well as Class II correction in certain cases. This article deals with the fabrication of a modified molar distalization jig. The salient features of this jig are that it is easy to fabricate with materials routinely available in an orthodontic office as well as very economical.
