The role of functional jaw orthopedics plays a vital role in treating the skeletal malocclusion, timely planned and well-executed treatment results in attain an excellent functional occlusion and craniofacial harmony. This article presents a case report of an adult patient diagnosed with Angles Class II malocclusion with an increased overjet of 9 mm and overbite of 5 mm with incompetent lip relationship. Whereas the skeletal base was an Orthognathic maxilla and Retrognathic mandible. The patient was treated in two phases where the first phase consists of a leveling and alignment of the teeth and the second phase with PowerScope 2 Class II corrector device for mandibular advancement to achieve the skeletal discrepancy. The overall treatment duration took 18 months. The success in orthodontic treatment depends on patient compliance particularly in correcting skeletal malocclusions. There is always a constant search for a simple appliance in the treatment of these type of malocclusions. PowerScope 2 Class II corrector is a promising appliance that is relatively simple to install and easy to maintain by patients this directly helps the orthodontist in maintaining patient compliance to achieve the predicted treatment outcome.
