In the treatment of malocclusion more emphasis is now placed on obtaining an excellent facial result as well as a set of teeth which is well aligned and in good function. The use of dento facial orthopaedic appliances have made these objectives possible. Not only can cases be finished better, they can also be completed in a shorter period of time. This paper reviews some of such appliances and case reports will also be presented.
