ABSTRACT:Treatment of skeletal Class II malocclusion demands a very calculative approach from an orthodontist’s perspective. Depending on the individual patient needs we have various treatment options available, however these options can be judged based on the growth status and the severity of malocclusion. The possible treatment plan in an adult includes camouflage or surgery but in cases where neither of the two are feasible we have to look for an alternative such as fixed functional appliance, which has shown to bring about decent treatment outcomes by causing dentoalveolar changes in the past literature and thus reducing the skeletal as well as dental discrepancy. Therefore in the present case report we emphasize on the use of Powerscope which is a type of fixed functionl appliance and its results showed a major improvement of skeletal, dental as well as the soft tissue relationships.
