AUTHOR(S): Mudasir Gul, Rameez Hassan, Mohammad Mushtaq, Zameer Khursahid and Gurdev Singh
ABSTRACT:A 16-year, old female patient, presented with the chief complaint of highly placed canines and irregular teeth. On examination and analysis of relevant records, he was diagnosed as an Angle's Class II malocclusion on an underlying Class I skeletal base, severely crowded maxillary arch with high labially placed canines. She was treated with a nonextraction treatment plan that involved bilateral maxillary molar distalization using Hilgers pendulum appliance followed by fixed mechanotherapy. The posttreatment results were highly satisfactory showing improvement in facial esthetics and occlusal traits as well as good long-term stability.
