English abstract
INTRODUCTION: The use of retromolar microscrews in the maxillary tuberosity allows orthodontic movements in the upper arch in the three planes of space. It is an ideal treatment in hyperdivergent patients with open bite and class II malocclusions where vertical control is required. We present 4 clinical cases treated under this treatment modality. KEYWORDS: skeletal anchorage, microscrews, retromolar anchorage, pterygoid anchorage, distalization, vertical control.
