This presentation will address the indications and timing for orthopedic treatment of Class II malocclusions. The age factor, growth pattern, and the severity of the malocclusion affect the treatment outcome when using a fixed functional appliance. Long-term treatment records will be presented to illustrate the stability after orthopedic treatment.

Objectives:

  • Recognize the indications and timing for Class II orthopedic treatment
  • Determine how the age factor, growth pattern and the severity of the malocclusion can affect the treatment outcome when using a fixed functional appliance
