Case Commentary

This patient presented with class II, div 2 upper incisor position, mandibular anterior crowding, and increased overbite. She also required the short-term use of a left class II elastic; this usually takes more time, yet she still finished in 10 months, and 7 days.

Treatment Goal

Goals of treatment included alignment, bite-opening, and classification to Class I canine occlusion on the left.
