In the treatment of Class II malocclusion, treatment possessing the capability to alter patients’ facial growth is of particular interest, namely by means of functional appliances, extraoral traction appliances, or a combination of both. There are certain clinical indications where functional appliances can be used successfully in class II malocclusion e.g. in a growing patient. The use of these appliances is greatly dependent on the patient's compliance and they simplify the fixed appliance phase. This is a case report of young growing male patient who had increased overjet and overbite, and an unaesthetic smile. The case was treated with Twin Block appliance followed by fixed appliance to detail the occlusion.
