WHAT ABOUT CLASS II’s: SOME THOUGHTS…

Class II mlocclusion is considered one of the most common problems to solve in orthodontics. Differential diagnosis constitutes a main pilar in adressing such deformations in order to be able to apply individualized therapeutic procedures.
Based on the above, each Class II has to be corrected differently and no cook book to follow exists. A thinking classifying dento-alveolar, skeletal and soft tissue components as well as identifying maxillary from mandibular etiology has to be developed and applied.
This presentation will expose an Individualized Orthodontic Philosophy applied to Class II cases through differential diagnosis and individuallized treatment planning.
