Abstract

Abstract A case report of a Class II, Division 1 subdivision malocclusion with a deep overbite and a marked overjet is presented. The patient was a 14-year-old boy with the potential for continued growth. The lip positions imposed by the teeth and the facial skeleton increased the labioversion of the maxillary incisors. A Begg light-wire appliance was used throughout the course of treatment. Since the maxilla and mandible were retrognathic to the cranial base, the malocclusion was treated by nonextraction methods.
