Compensatory orthodontic treatment of Class II malocclusion, mandibular deficiency, can be associated with the use of fixed mandibular protractor devices which aim at correcting occlusal relationships, without, however, causing significant changes in facial pattern. This treatment modality — treatment with corrective intent — has a favorable prognosis in patients with a minimally acceptable face. This article aims at describing the use of a fixed mandibular protractor device (FLF), through a clinical case, highlighting the advantages of this therapeutic approach in the treatment of Class II malocclusions, mandibular deficiency.
