Class II Correction: What to expect when you’re correcting
What are the odds that we’ll correct a Class II when we try? How can we know when we’ll be successful or fall short? This lecture will discuss the roles of tooth movement, growth, and luck in Class II correction. We will take an evidence-based approach to studying Class II correction and learn when and how much to bet on mandibular growth for your Class II correction and when to make other plans. We will discuss the differences and similarities between functional appliances, correction springs, and elastics in the improvement of Class II malocclusions. We will also examine the important role that occlusal intercuspation plays in Class II growth that is often overlooked.
