What is Molar Uprighting and Who Typically Needs It?
Posted on 5/15/2019 by Dr. Jon Packman
When you have tilted teeth in the mouth, molars in this situation, then you would likely need to have something called a molar uprighting done. These are usually the second molars in the mouth, and they are found behind the back of the molar in front of it.
This is what pushes the molar down on one side, as the other side continues to pop back up. It can also mean that the tooth was trying to drift into this empty space in the mouth.
What is Uprighting?
Uprighting is when the tilted molar is then put right back up without having to take the tooth, or any of the other teeth out of the mouth to fix the issue. This procedure has been shown to provide positive results and a reliable procedure for our office to perform on those that are dealing with molar uprighting.
