Abstract

A case report of a 13-year old male presented in his mixed dentition stage with a Class II division 2 incisor relationship on a mild Class II skeletal base, complicated by an increased overbite, retroclined upper and lower incisors (bimaxillary retroclination) and moderate crowding in the upper and lower labial segments. Treatment was undertaken without extraction employing an upper removable appliance with a flat anterior bite plane to correct the overbite, and an anterior screw to proclined the upper incisors while waiting for the eruption of the permanent teeth. Pre-adjusted edgewise fixed appliances were placed in the lower arch, then in the upper arch to level and align the dentition, achieve Class I incisor relationship, reduced the interincisal angle and close residual spaces.
