This article describes the orthodontic treatment of an adolescent patient presenting a class II skeletal, convex profile, mesofacial biotype, upper dental midline deviated 1 mm to the left, Class I bilateral molar, canine distoclusion of ½ right unit and left canine relationship non-determinable because piece 23 is in ectopic position, proinclination and inferior protrusion. The treatment plan was to distalize the maxillary molars and create enough space to incorporate pieces 13, 23 in the dental arch, a pendulum appliance supported with two orthodontic mini implants were used. The active treatment lasted 18 months and at the end of it, all the objectives were fulfilled, resulting in facial balance. The pendulum appliance is a good alternative for a Class II dental correction, it produces distalization of the maxillary molars in an optimal treatment time.
