Abstract

Which is the best Class II treatment?

A Class II malocclusion, in combination with a large overjet, is found in around 20-25 per cent of untreated children and adolescents and is often a reason for orthodontic treatment.

This postgraduate course will, in an evidence based way, focus on treatment effects when performing different Class II treatments. Special attention will be given to the vertical dimension in order to avoid the so-called ‘clockwise response’.

The stability of Class II treatments will be discussed, especially in relation to growth and timing of treatment.

Case selection, treatment effects and treatment outcome will be discussed and exemplified for cases treated with removable, Herbst and Forsus® appliances and in extraction and non-extraction fixed appliance treatment.
