The presented treatment strategy represents a concept that allows for a spontaneous correction of Class II malocclusion in an adult patient after unlocking the restrained mandible. As in Class II division 2 malocclusion the mandible acquires a retruded position that is spontaneously corrected to a more forward position after deep bite correction. Not only improvements in the dental parameters, as over-jet reduction, had been met but also there was an actual enhancement of the skeletal components; where the SNB angle increased by 2 degrees. This clarified a more physiologic method by which the orthodontic clinician can approach the treatment of Class II division 2 cases through commencing his treatment by vertical correction mechanics.
