Summary of Speech
II Class Treatment With and Without Compliance 

The II class malocclusion orthopaedic and also the not extractive nor surgical treatments with fixed appliance are usually affected by a wide patients collaboration or elastics phase.

This normally requires a deep involvement of the patient that must cooperate with orthodontist to achieve the goal.

If the patient’s collaboration is not reliable the treatment results could be partial and unsuccessful.

Nowadays both young and adult patients have a very active and stressful lifestyle and this affects the therapy timing and results due to the collaboration decrease.

We’ve to consider that today there’s the chance to achieve treatment objectives with no compliance systems that allow to correct the class II without patient’s work and so reducing the therapy time and the stress for both doctors and patients.

The advantages and disadvantages of the no compliance compared with compliance tools will be examined during the lecture.
