The aim of this article is to divulge the clinical application of the Thurow extraoral appliance, demonstrating its orthopedic effects for the correction of maxillary protrusion in two clinical cases. The patients were in the inter-transitional period of mixed dentition and in the pre-pubertal growth stage. They were diagnosed with Class II skeletal and dental malocclusion, exaggerated overbite, accentuated horizontal overjet and maxillary atresia. The therapeutic procedures performed and the dental and skeletal alterations obtained will be described.
