Many to choose from: From orthodontic point of view, orthodontic appliances are plenty. but from patient's experience, we can categorize them into the following: 1- Metal braces (ur regular braces and wires) 2- Clear braces (same stuff, in clear color) 3- lingual braces (these are bonded behind ur teeth hence invisible 4- aligner systems (Invisalign, clearcorrect,...) which one is best for u? ask ur orthodontist

Studies say no!: So, the technique involves a major surgery, it does lead to fast tooth movement, but the effect fades away in 1 to 2 months and after that, rate of tooth movement is about the same with no significant clinical difference. Is it worth it? I don't think so. Are you going to find materials indicating the opposite online? absolutely :)

Wires & brackets: In %95 of my case I use wires and brackets to correct the problem you mention. One easy way is to add a bite block (ot not) and then add buccal crown torque to your wires in mandible. expansion in mn wire also leads to buccal tilting of the molars. there are more complicated solutions such as using TADs, buccal crossbite elastics (elastics from buccal in Mx to lingual in Mn molar). I like simple:)
