Abstract:

The present protocol for the correction of Class II malocclusion with mandibular retrognathism is by using the fixed functional appliances. This article includes a case treated with Gentle Jumper – a flexible fixed functional appliance.  A pre-pubertal patient with class II malocclusion with 70% deep bite was treated with Gentle Jumper along with fixed appliance (MBT- 0.022” slot). Deep bite has been treated with extrusion of posteriors and proclination of anteriors.  It resulted in the favorable skeletal and dentoalveolar changes in the mandible. There was slight proclination of lower incisors. Good soft tissue changes were noted. Gentle Jumper is an efficient class II corrector in pre-pubertal period. It promotes patient compliance with very minimal breakages.

Keywords: Gentle Jumper Deep bite, Class II malocclusion
