This study aimed to review the literature related to the intrusion of maxillary posterior teeth in subjects needing pre-prosthetic restoration or orthodontic treatment due to anterior open bite, and to report a thin alveolar biotype case needing a pre-prosthetic intrusion of maxillary teeth by introducing a novel, personalized method of intrusion measurement. An electronic search was conducted between February 2022 and March 2022 in the following databases: PubMed, Scopus, Embase, Web of Science, and Lilacs; the terms “tooth movement techniques”, “orthodontic anchorage procedures”, “tooth intrusion”, “intrusion”, “molar”, “premolar”, and “human” were surveyed. Eighteen articles were included in this review; the mean amount of intrusion ranged from between 2.1 ± 0.9 mm and 4.57 ± 0.98 mm (being mostly 2–3 mm). The intrusion force varied between 100 and 500 g; 10 articles reported miniscrews (MS), 7 reported zygomatic plates (ZP), and 1 publication reported both anchorage types. The average treatment time was 6.9 months for MS and 7.9 months for ZP. Levelling the occlusal plane by intrusion of the upper posterior teeth can be achieved by skeletal anchorage. The stability of the obtained results, shortening treatment time, and controlling treatment outcome are the main goals for a complex surgical and orthodontic treatment approach. View Full-Text
