|Abstract||Treatment of patients with Class II malocclusion includes orthodontics, surgery or a combination of these therapeutic modalities. Patient wishes and expectations should be considered besides clinical findings, for selecting the most appropriate treatment strategy. Two cases of patients with Class II malocclusion are reported in this paper. Both were initially managed with orthodontic treatment that restored dental occlusion, whereas the skeletal discrepancy was not affected. Augmentation genioplasty was performed for facial esthetic correction using the alloplastic implant material Proplast¨ (Polytetrafluoroethylene). The esthetic result was satisfactory and remained stable during the 2-year postoperative follow-up.|
