Class II malocclusions are found in approximately 20% of the U.S. population and are one of the most common manifestations observed on patients seeking orthodontic treatment. Treatment modalities involve fixed appliances with a Class II corrector, Class II elastics, extraoral appliances, fixed or removable intraoral appliances, extraction therapy, or a surgical-orthodontic approach. Class II elastics, extraoral appliances, and intraoral removable appliances are dependent on patient compliance.
