A study has been performed to analyze the results of orthopedic treatment of Class II division 1 malocclusion with rethrognatic mandible. The objectives were to determine if solid interdigitation of cuspids and premolars presents dentocclusal stability and if that stability was followed by skeletal position. Data obtained suggest that the correction was achieved by dentocclusal compensation more than by mandible advancement, therefore that effect can not be put away. Ideal occlusion achieved in the majority of the patients was stable more than five years after end of treatment.  (Rev Esp Ortod. 2007;37(1):025-034)
