Abstract

Aim- To evaluate and compare the skeletal effects of Forsus Fatigue Resistant Device and Powerscope Class II Corrector.


Materials and method- Lateral cephalograms of 48 (pre and post) class II patients in the post peak age group were taken and divided into three groups, 12 patients were treated as control group, 12 treated with Forsus Fatigue Resistant Device and 12 treated with Powerscope Class II Corrector. The skeletal analysis was done using Pancherz cephalometric analysis.


Results- Cephalometric analysis revealed that both the appliances stimulatedmandibular growth, increased the anterior face height and posterior face height due to growth of temporomandibular joint.


Conclusion- Both the appliances were effective in the treatment of Class II malocclusion and revealed nearly same alterations in the skeletalparameters.
