Class II, Division I malocclusion has been described as the most frequent treatment problem in orthodontic practice. Aim & objectives of the present case report was to evaluate the management of skeletal Class II division 1 malocclusion in non growing patient with extraction of upper first premolars and lower incisor. Clinical and cephalometric evaluation revealed skeletal Class II with Angles Class II division 1 malocclusion. Other findings are mild mandibular anterior crowding, severe maxillary incisor proclination, exaggerated curve of spee, convex profile, incompetent lips, increased overjet and overbite. Maxillary first premolars were extracted followed by en-masse retraction of anteriors with the help of temporary anchorage devices (TADs) to avoid anchorage loss. Mandibular incisor was extracted to correct curve of spee. Following treatment marked improvement in patient’s smile, facial profile and lip competence were achieved and there was a remarkable increase in the patient’s confidence and quality of life.
