Class II division 2 malocclusions in adults are usually challenging to treat. This article presents a method to correct this
type of malocclusion based on sound biomechanical principles. Intrusion arches and mushroom loop continuous arches provide
a simple method for the correction of Class II division 2 malocclusions in adults with the minimum side effects. Forces and
moments incorporated in these wires allow a simultaneous intrusion and retraction of teeth with good axial inclination control
of teeth thereby eliminating need for torque or root correction stages. A step by step description of one case that illustrates all
the stages of treatment is presented.
