Abstract

Treatment of Class II malocclusion in growing individuals consists of Functional therapy to displace the mandible forward, headgear to restrict or redirect the growth of maxilla or combination of both. However, both the above mentioned treatment modalities depend upon patient compliance. In a non compliant patient or in cases where more of a dento-alveolar compensation is required fixed functional appliances are used. Forsus fatigue resistant device (FRD) is one such appliance used to correct Class II division 1 malocclusion. However the side effects of mechanotherapy with fixed functional appliance have to be controlled and good intercuspation ensures stability of results achieved. This case report shows one such case of Class II division 1 malocclusion treated with Forsus in conjunction with fixed appliance.

Keywords: Class II malocclusion, Forsus, Fixed functional appliance.
