Patients with missing molars usually present with supraerupted antagonist molars, hampering rehabilitation by prosthesis. In such cases orthodontic intrusion of the supraerupted molar can be considered. There are several modalities for intrusion but active intrusion can be achieved by temporary anchorage devices or TAD’s. Intraorally TAD’s can be placed at various sites in the maxilla such as buccal alveolus, palatal alveolus and mid palatal region. Among these, palatal alveolus provides more favorable periodontium for stability of TAD’s. This case report presents molar intrusion with a palatal implant.
