Long-term outcome of skeletal Class II Division 1 malocclusion treated with rapid palatal expansion and Kloehn cervical headgear.

Abstract

The treatment of a patient with a skeletal Class II Division 1 malocclusion, with excessive overjet, complete overbite, airway obstruction, and severe arch length deficiency in the mandibular dental arch, is presented. The maxilla was narrow compared with the mandible, and the posterior teeth were compensated, with the maxillary teeth inclined buccally and the mandibular teeth inclined lingually. The palatal vault was extremely high. Treatment included rapid palatal expansion to correct the transverse maxillary deficiency and Kloehn cervical headgear to correct the anteroposterior skeletal discrepancy. Long-term stability (12-year follow-up) is reported.
