There are 3 ways to treat a Class II skeletal discrepancy: growth modification, surgery, or orthodontic camouflage. A growing patient is an obvious requirement for growth modification. Surgery may be ideally required for patients with large skeletal discrepancies. But how do we treat patients who decline surgery or present with inadequate growth for complete correction of moderate skeletal discrepancies? Dr. Shaughnessy will discuss orthodontic camouflage as a viable option. The teeth are moved to a position of best fit, despite the skeletal discrepancy.

What type of patient is the best candidate for orthodontic camouflage? What about the Class III patient with excessive mandibular growth? vs. maxillary deficiency? Numerous patients treated via orthodontic camouflage will be shown, with an emphasis on the anteroposterior plane of space. Camouflage treatment in the transverse and vertical planes of space will be briefly introduced and highlighted with a few examples.


  • Define Orthodontic Camouflage and the rationale for this form of treatment.
  • Appreciate the limits of Orthodontic Camouflage treatment and when it is not a prudent choice.
  • Understand which patients are the best candidates for Orthodontic Camouflage.
  • Discuss the difference age and growth make in committing to Orthodontic Camouflage treatment of Class II vs Class III patients.
