Abstract

Enhancing facial aesthetics is a primary motivation for individuals with class II division 1 malocclusion seeking orthodontic treatment. Among the different techniques available to treat Class II malocclusions, a two-phase approach involving functional jaw orthopedics and fixed orthodontic treatment is commonly employed. In this case report, we present the treatment of a young male patient with a Class II Division 1 malocclusion. In the initial phase, the patient underwent growth modification and correction of overjet, overbite, and profile using the Andresen activator. Subsequently, a fixed orthodontic appliance was utilized in the second phase to achieve well-aligned arches and enhance both aesthetics and functionality.
