Abstract

Treatment of Class II div 2 malocclusion has always been a challenge for an orthodontist which requires a careful diagnosis and a treatment planning including occlusal, functional, and esthetic considerations. Additionally, the presence of impacted mandibular canine increases the complexity of the treatment as more clinical efforts and time is required to dis-impact mandibular canine, as mandible has a dense cortical bone. This case report represents the management of a class II div 2 malocclusion with impacted mandibular canine treated with camouflage in a 14 years old patient. The impacted canine was orthodontically guided into occlusion and a good esthetic and functional results were achieved.
