Class II management with skeletal anchorage

Class II malocclusion has the highest prevalence compared to those that characterize our patients. Nevertheless, very often the therapeutic approach to this type of malocclusion is based mainly on clinical opinions, dated and partial information. Frequently, therefore, the clinician, mainly if at the beginning of his orthodontic journey, is in difficulty in identifying the right choices that characterize the correct diagnostic and therapeutic path, poised between aesthetics and biological limits, between efficacy and efficiency. In certain cases, the choice of the anchorage and its orthodontic management can be extremely important for the outcome of the treatment. In these cases, the use of skeletal anchorage can deeply improve the efficiency and efficacy of the treatment, reducing clinical problems, patients’ compliance and, mostly important, giving to the clinicians a reliable and predictable anchorage. Several clinical protocols can be used for this purpose. Relative advantages and disadvantages will be analysed during the lecture.
