Class 11 malocclusion generally occurs as a result of either increased maxillary growth or decreased
mandibular growth or a combination of the same. Face bow along with headgear redirects the maxillary
growth, where as functional appliances bring about the forward positioning of the mandible. The present
case report show case a young girl of 11 years of age who was treated with a combination of high pull
face bow attached with the activator, followed by fixed mechanotherapy. The combined headgear activator
therapy provides greater cumulative skeletal benefits than a single appliance alone. Meticulous diagnosis
and sound knowledge of biomechanics persuades efficient treatment results.
Keywords: Activator, Head gear, Class 11 malocclusion.
