Class II malocclusion treatment can be successfully performed with the Herbst appliance stabilized with acrylic splints. Using this kind of stabilization a posterior open bite is always present when the appliance is removed. Two case reports are presented to illustrate how it is possible to manage the post- Herbst phase in different types of growth pattern in order to obtain the best aesthetical and functional results.
