Scissor bite is a rare form of malocclusion that is often accompanied by varying degrees of facial asymmetry. Correction and treatment of scissor bite in posterior teeth is a challenging job for an orthodontist. There are several treatment options for correction of scissor bite in posterior teeth but some have their own ill-effects on the dentition thus contributing further to the problem and some require patient compliance which compromises the outcome of the treatment. Therefore to overcome these drawbacks we have designed a new appliance to correct the molar scissor bite.
