Angle Class II malocclusion is defined according to the anteroposterior molar relationship with or without a discrepancy between basal bones. Maxillary protrusion and mandibular retrusion are included in this pattern. When orthodontic treatment starts at an early age, it is possible to affect growth of both basal bones and the dentoalveolar region, which helps to correct tooth positioning in the corrective phase. This report describes the treatment of a case of Angle Class II, division 1 malocclusion that was presented to the Committee of the Brazilian Board of Orthodontics and Facial Orthopedics (BBO) as partial fulfillment of the requirements to obtain the BBO Diploma. The case was representative of category 1, that is, Angle Class II malocclusion treated without extractions and with growth control.
