Özet

The effects of various directed farces applied by combined headgear were evaluated in this study, The study material consisted of 30 patients with Class II dental relationships and steep mandibular plane angles, Three groups of 10 patients each were formed. in the first treatment group, farces of 150 gm per side were used for the high-pull component and the cervical component. In the second treatment group, forces of 200 gm per side for the high-pull component and 100 gm per side for the cervical component were applied, In the third treatment group, forces of 100 gm per side were applied for the high-pull component and 200 gm per side for the cervical component. Distal tipping of upper molar was greatest in the third treatment group, Intrusion of the upper molar in the second treatment group and extrusion of the upper molar in the third treatment group were statistically significant, Changes in occlusal and mandibular plane angles showed significant differences between the groups.
