|Children with unilateral Class II or Class III malocclusion are extremely difficult to treat. However, with proper appliance design and planning, orthodontist could get quite good results. Our patient was a 11.3 years old boy at S period of skeletal maturation. Extraorally, patient had a convex profile, upper and lower midlines was symmetric to midline of the face. Intraorally, class II canine and molar relations were observed on both sides. Overjet and overbite measured 6 mm and 4 mm, respectively. Arch discrepancies were observed 4 mm on maxilla and 3 mm on mandible. On the first stage of the treatment, patient treated with activator and after that, during the treatment with fixed appliances, a relapse occurred on left side of the patient. Then, the unilateral class II malocclusion was treated with unilateral fixed functional appliance. At the end of the treatment, Class I dental and skeletal occlusion and a nearly straight soft tissue profile were achieved. Patient was examined after 1 years of retention period. The results achieved by the treatment were stable.|
