The aim of the present case report was to present a novel technique for treatment of skeletal class II malocclusion using implant supported class II elastics. MBT 0.022 fixed mechanotherapy was employed along with a total of four power headed implants which were placed between lower 1st and 2nd molars and upper central and laterals to attach class II elastics. After seven months of implant supported mandibular advancement Class I molar relations were achieved and overjet was eliminated with a reduction in profile convexity. Based on our literature search no such technique has been reported.

Aim: The purpose of our research was to assess the vertical height changes after orthognathic surgery during anterio-posterior movement using cephalometric analysis. Methodology: Immediate Postsurgical and one-year postsurgical lateral cephalograms of 10 adult patients (age group - 17 to 40 years, with a mean age of 22.2 years) who had been treated successfully by maxillary Le-Fort I osteotomy were obtained. Comparisons were made between T1-T2 to assess the changes following surgery and to evaluate the stability, one year following the surgery using 5 horizontal, 5 vertical linear and 2 angular measurement. A paired t‑test was used to analyse the paired observations. Results: The incisors extrusion was limited to an average of 1.2 mm and the molars showed a 0.2 mm movement. The upper incisor showed a significant posterior movement. The upper molar also showed a posterior movement but to a lesser extent when compared to the incisors. Conclusion: There was a significant reduction in the facial height and significant anterior movement of maxilla after surgery. Even after one year of surgery, negligible amount of relapse was recorded except at the incisors.
