In this article, we are presenting a new mandibular anchorage solution through three clinical cases.
This method is based on a mountain climbing technique. Thanks to a simple fixation wire insert in the jaw bone, it is now possible to obtain a backward movement of the mandibular arch and a significant uprighting of the incisors.
Key words: Anchorage / distalization / incisor uprighting / fixation wire / jaw bone
