Abstract

Skeletal Class II correction in deceleration phase of growth is both a challenge and dilemma with choice between extraction and myofunctional therapy. With marginal growth remaining the convenient choice is extraction for camouflage of the skeletal discrepancy. On the other hand, the treatment with Fixed Functional Appliances (FFAs) helps in resolution of the problem without sacrificing the dentition. However, the conventional FFAs requires a phase of alignment which results in further loss of time to utilize any remaining growth. The present report proposes the use of a novel custom made functional appliance for Class II skeletal correction which is simple to fabricate and convenient to use.
