The aim of the present case report was to present the treatment of a growing patient with skeletal class II malocclusion with by mandibular retrusion using PowerscopeTM anchored to mini plates. After initial leveling and alignment of the upper arch using fixed appliance (MBT prescription; 0.022-inch slot), 0.021 X 0.025-inch SS arch wire was inserted. One week after the placement of miniplates bilaterally at the symphysis of mandible, powerscope was installed on to the miniplates and the upper 0.021 X 0.025 inch archwire anterior to the molars. After eight months, powerscope was removed and lower arch strap up was done. Favorable skeletal and dental changes were observed at the end of active treatment with powerscope and finishing and detailing with fixed appliance.
