Management of Class II correction device.
Lecture presented at McIntyre joint plenary program for doctors at the 66th Annual scientific session of the Canadian Association of Orthodontists, Montréal, september 2014
Class II correction devices are commonly used in orthodontics and exist in many declension. Literature reviews show that such devices do not appear to cause any significant changes in mandibular length and their effectiveness in correcting class II malocclusion can be explained by a combination of some skeletal (mainly maxillary) and dentoalveolar (maxillary and mandibular) modifications. The SUS2 corrector device will be presented using bondable head gear tube and self-ligating mandibular molar tube. A case presentaion will be used to explain how to use SUS2 device in a successful manner.
