Objectives: The aim of this article is to present a case treated with elastodontic appliances. Materials and methods: The patient, who was in the active growth phase, presented a severe deep bite (skeletal class II), which required orthopedic treatment to stimulate and guide mandibular growth. She was treated with an OCCLUS-o-GUIDE ® type H, which is designed so that the mandible in the set-up is advanced 5 mm from the maxilla into a Class III relation. Results: Treatment with the elastodontic appliance resulted in clinical and radiographic resolution of the malocclusion. Conclusions: The use of elastodontic appliances can be a valid treatment option for the resolution of skeletal class II deep bite in growing patients.
