Aim of this report is to describe a case of a patient in mixed dentition with dento-skeletal class II malocclusion, deep bite, increased overjet and gummy smile. In this kind of clinical case the objectives of treatment were: to correct the dento-skeletal malocclusion, to obtain a correct overbite and overjet, to control the permanent teeth in a good eruption, to improve aesthetical conditions and to maintain clinical results. Treatment plan included just Occlus-o-guide®, the type that is indicated for mixed dentition (G type). The active phase of therapy was conducted in twelve months and the retention time was two years. Then the patient was controlled every three months and she used the appliance nighttime in alternance for one year more. Occlus-o-guide® was the indicated appliance to obtain all the objectives requested to solve the malocclusion. The early therapy with Occlus-o-guide® is easy, short and most of treated cases don’t need a second phase of orthodontic therapy.
