Loss of the mandibular first permanent molar causes the supraeruption of the opposing maxillary first molar that often leads to occlusal interference, loss of periodontal bony support, and inadequate area to restore the mandibular edentulous space. It is highly impossible to restore the posterior occlusion without orthodontic molar intrusion or segmental surgical impaction, which often suggest the need for significant reduction of maxillary molar crown height, with the potential need for costly iatrogenic root canal therapy and restoration. Supra-erupted maxillary first molars are most frequently seen in adult patients because of the loss of contralateral tooth. This article discuss about a novel technique for first-molar intrusion with a helix incorporated in arch wire and intrusion arm soldered to Trans-palatal arch.

Keywords: Supra-erupted, Molar intrusion, Edentulous space, Noninvasive, Contralateral tooth.
