Full-step Class II Correction Using a Modified C-palatal Plate for Total Arch Distalization in an Adolescent.


A 13-year-old adolescent male patient had a convex profile, severe overjet, and deep overbite with a skeletal Class II pattern. His maxillary dentition was distalized using a modified C-palatal plate (MCPP), and the treatment outcome was stable. After 37 months of total treatment, a pleasing profile and a favorable Class I occlusion was successfully achieved with 5 mm of distalization in the maxillary dentition. MCPP is a viable treatment option for full-step Class II in adolescents, especially when the patients/parents decline the extraction option.
