AS17B15B - Simple and Innovative Method in Class II Correction

Apr 22, 2017 1:45pm ‐ Apr 22, 2017 2:15pm


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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the indications of the modified C-palatal plate (MCPP) in class II corrections.
  • Illustrate the step-by-step chair-side procedures required to incorporate the MCPP in orthodontic practices.
  • Recognize the pros and cons of the MCPP and manage maxillary distalization aided by the MCPP with clinical excellence.
