Favorable condylar repositioning of the mandible

In a few cases, the mandible may be positioned distally at the start of treatment, and then the condyles can be expected to reposition more mesially into a centered position, as treatment progresses. For example, in some Class 11/2 treatments, there is the chance of a small but favorable mesial movement of'B' point after the case has been converted to a Class 11/1 malocclusion (Fig. 7.34), although this is difficult to confirm with research evidence (Case DO, p. 212).

Fig. 7.34 During the opening stages of some Class 11/2 treatments, there is a possiblity of favorable mesial movement of 'B' point.
