The orthodontic treatment of severe class II division 1 malocclusions is often difficult, which leads some specialists to offer a surgical correction of the overjet. Treatment is made complex by the value of the horizontal overlap as much as the « depth » of deep bite that is very often present alongside the malocclusion. This is why we are offering a treatment protocol including a FABP (Fixed Anterior Bite Plate) which will allow, if the patient cooperates, to correct the anatomic anomaly while concurrently establishing new masticatory cycles in order to stabilize and preserve the results obtained. It is this systemic approach of treatment that is the focus of this article.
Key words: Skeletal class II malocclusions / mandibular movements / occlusal plane / incisal bite plane
