The orthodontic correction of a Class II Division I malocclusion with significant maxillary arch length deficiency and a blocked-out maxillary cuspid is reported. The case was successfully completed on a non-extraction basis using extraoral cervical headgear anchorage and compressed coil springs to gain necessary maxillary arch length. No intermaxillary elastics or functional appliances were used. Favorable patient cooperation and facial growth were instrumental in achieving good results.
