Skeletal Class II malocclusion may be due to maxillary prognathism, mandibular retrognathism or a combination of both. Among these, mandibular retrusion is one of the most common characteristics in Skeletal Class II patients. Early screening and diagnosis help in preventing and intercepting the severity of the malocclusion. Mostly, Class II Skeletal discrepancies with mandibular deficiency during active growth are usually treated by myofunctional appliances. Recently, fixed functional appliance therapy has been gaining popularity as a treatment modality of skeletal class II malocclusion.This case report demonstrates the effectiveness of Power Scope in correction of skeletal Class II with mandibular deficiency in a growing patient treated by a non-extraction approach. This case was treated initially with MBT 0.022” prescription followed by Power Scope Appliance. Results were improvement in facial profile, skeletal jaw relationship, and overall esthetic appearance of the patient.

Keywords: Class II malocclusion, Non-Extraction, Power scope appliance.
