Introduction: Class II malocclusion is characterized by an anteroposterior dental discrepancy, which is usually accompanied by skeletal changes. Objective: To present the case report of a Class II division 1 malocclusion with stable growth and bone discrepancy, compensatorily treated with the aid of elastics, without extractions and without surgery. The sagittal relation was corrected by intermaxillary Class II elastics. The compensatory treatment with the aid of elastics becomes advantageous to the orthodontist when orthognathic surgery is rejected, however it is necessary to warn the patient to cooperate with treatment, so the orthodontist should emphasize motivation.
