This article describes, through a case report, a treatment with corrective intention of a Pattern II mandibular deficiency, associated with a Class II division 1 occlusal relationship, in a young patient, through orthopedic mandibular advancement with the Herbst appliance, followed by fixed orthodontics finalization. The treatment, performed in two subsequent steps, provided the patient appropriate aesthetics and function in a relatively short time, reinforcing the importance of a careful diagnosis to define individualized therapeutic goals.
