Treatment of mild to moderate Class II relationships with good facial profile can be possible without extraction of bicuspids with a correct diagnosis. Distalization of upper molars may be used for obtaining a correct Class I relationship between molars and cuspids without bicuspid extractions. One among the effective noncompliance molar distalization appliance, is the Intraoral “Distal Propeller Appliance”. This case report illustrates correction of Class II malocclusion in a 16 year old patient using the Distal Propeller Appliance in which molar was distalized effectively without increasing the overjet or worsening the facial profile.
