Abstract:

While making orthodontics treatment planning the most important objective is to correct skeletal discrepancies by utilising the growth potential of patient so that most favourable results could be achieved.1 Response to orthopaedic treatment modalities is maximum during the peak of adolescent growth spurt. The correct identification of the pre - pubertal and post-pubertal growth phases on an individual basis is very important in orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning.[2] Orthopaedic treatment of patients with Class III malocclusion and rapid maxillary expansion achieve maximum efficacy when performed at a pre - pubertal growth phase. On the other hand, in Class II subjects the amount of supplementary mandibular growth induced by functional appliances appears to be significantly greater when the treatment is performed during the pubertal growth phase
