AUTHOR(S): Shailey, Shalu Jain, Pradeep Raghav and Pankaj Wadhwa
ABSTRACT:Class II div 2 is a marked category of Class II malocclusion with typical features like retroclined maxillary incisors and severe deep over bite, caused by both skeletal and dentoalveolar factors. This case report describes the orthodontic treatment of a 21 years old male, with permanent dentition, sagittal skeletal Class I pattern, Class I molar and canine relationship with class II div 2 incisor relationship. His chief compliant was irregularly placed teeth in upper front region of the jaw. The patient had convex profile, incompetent lips and deep mento- labial sulcus with 100% overbite. Treatment mostly consisted of inclination correction of the incisors and opening of the bite with the help of modified sectional archwire in the maxillary arch and double L-loop mandibular archwire. Satisfactory improvement in the patient’s esthetics was achieved along with improved overjet, overbite and inclination of incisors.
