In treatment of class II cases the palatal plate is a highly effective appliance, which can be easily placed and managed by orthodontists. Scientific evidence demonstrated that the application of Modified C-Palatal Plate (MCPP) resulted in successful treatment outcomes by efficient molar distalization with a near-bodily movement. A creative and innovative approach for Class II correction using MCPP will be discussed including biomechanics and practical guidelines. Clinical pearls and a simple management of MCPP including step-by-step placement procedures with use of a jig will be presented.
