Özet

The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the dentofacial effects of the reciprocal mini-chin cup (RMCC) appliance in subjects with pubertal growth and development potential (group 1) and in subjects that had completed this period (group 2). Eighteen patients (13 females, five males) with an Angle Class II division 1 and nine patients (six females, three males) with a Class II division 2 malocclusion, with mandibular dentoalveolar retrusion and optimal vertical facial dimension were included. A control group consisting of 14 subjects (nine females, five males) with pubertal growth and development potential was constructed for comparison with group 1. In both treatment groups a RMCC was used.
