Correction of a Overjet and Overbite In Class II Division 1 Malocclusion Using Twin Block Appliance Therapy: A Case Report

, : Correction of a Overjet and Overbite In Class II Division 1 Malocclusion Using Twin Block Appliance Therapy: A Case Report. International Journal of Orthodontics 26(4): 19-22

Class II division 1 malocclusion is the most common malocclusion. It shows specific clinical characteristics such as large overiet and deep overbite resulting in a soft tissue profile imbalance. Majority of the patients with class II division 1 malocclusions have an underlying skeletal discrepancy between the maxilla and mandible. The treatment of skeletal class II division 1 malocclusion is done taking into consideration the age, growth potential, severity of malocclusion, and compliance of patient with treatment. Myofunctional appliances can be successfully used to treat growing patients with class II division 1 malocclusion. This article presents a discussion on successful treatment of class II division 1 malocclusion with growth modification approach using twin block appliances.
