This clinical article reports an esthetic treatment option for managing a Class II malocclusion in an adult. The patient, a woman aged 24 years 2 months, had crowding and a convex profile. She was treated with maxillary first premolar extractions, a double J retractor, and temporary skeletal anchorage devices in the maxillary arch. Posttreatment records after 2 years showed excellent results with good occlusion and long-term stability.
