Abstract

Camouflage is the masking of underlying skeletal problem by treating only dental problems. This case report describes a 14 years 2 months old Asian male presented with increased overjet on mild Class-II skeletal base with average vertical facial proportions. Treatment involved orthodontic camouflage by extracting maxillary first premolars with correction of proclined incisors in the upper arch. Treatment took 18 months in completion in which patient profile and esthetics were significantly improved.
