A study case of Class II division malocclusions represents 27% of the Tunisian population. The chief complains to f patient who has previously treated by activator, including maxillary incisors proclamation with an elongated appearance of the face and chewing difficulties. The treated malocclusion is characterized by a narrow maxillary arch with disto-position of the molars, long upper incisors, short lips and a recessed chin. The treatment of the identified severe promaxilla required a rapid management by distalisation mechanics in order to establish correct aesthetics and oral function. The management of this clinical situation with a narrowed transverse sense may complicate the treatment. The use of mechanics was preferred and allowed a better solution employing orthodontic forces to generate well directed growth. The technique also allowed the treatment of mouth breathing and lingual dysfunction as the primary causes of the observed defects. A molar and canine class 1 and correction of the malocclusion were obtained. The Improving of facial aesthetics and smile enlarging of were also ensured.
