Correction of class II deep bite can be achieved by orthodontic treatment alone or by combination of orthodontics and orthognathic surgery. Orthognathic surgery is indicated when dental discrepancy cannot be corrected by the use of orthodontic mechanotherapy alone or when facial aesthetics are compromised. The purpose of this paper is to describe a technique of subapical osteotomy performed along with periodontal therapy, to correct the anterior traumatic deep bite, thus salvaging the mutilated teeth and achieving facial aesthetics.
