Abstract

Class II Division 2 malocclusion is often characterized by severe, traumatic deepbite with lingually inclined and overerupted incisors. Combined orthodontic-orthopedic treatment of this malocclusion is a challenging issue for orthodontists. This case report describes the combined orthodontic-orthopedic treatment of an adolescent Class II Division 2 patient with an extreme deepbite and a retrognathic mandible using the Forsus Fatigue Resistant Device.HighlightsCombined fixed-functional treatment of a Class II Division 2 patient is presented.The impinging overbite was resolved by the application of a fixed anterior biteplane appliance.The Forsus FRD was applied to stimulate mandibular growth.A functional and stable occlusion with a balanced soft tissue profile was established.
