Mandibular retrusion is the most prevailing characteristic feature of Class II malocclusion. Removable Functional appliances and Fixed Functional Appliances (FFA) have been utilized for correction of Class II malocclusions in growing patients.
This paper discusses the management of two young patients with Angles Class II Division 2 malocclusion with minimal growth remaining and with mandibular retrognathism who were treated with a two-phase therapy. The first phase involved alignment of arches with fixed Pre Adjusted Appliance (0.018”Roth). This was followed by a second phase involving application of Forsus fixed functional appliance for 6 months that resulted in unlocking of the mandible to Class I molar and canine relationship.
Fixed Functional Appliances in general and the Forsus FRD in particular when used in conjunction with full bonded fixed appliance greatly facilitates the correction of Class II Division 2 malocclusions and the duration of the treatment is also reduced.
Keywords: Retroclination, Forsus FRD.
