Aim: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the dento-skeletal and soft tissue changes with AdvanSync 2 appliance in Class II patients.Material and methods: A sample of 30 subjects (15 males and 15 females) were selected after satisfying the inclusion criteria. Patient age ranged between 14-18 years (mean age 15.6 years). The hard and soft tissue measurements were recorded at three different stages of treatment, T1 - before the start of the Orthodontic treatment, T2 - before AdvanSync installation, T3 - after removal of AdvanSync. The data collection included lateral cephalograms, digital photographs (frontal, lateral, and Oblique view), and study models at T1, T2, and T3. All the measurements were analyzed for any significance.Results: Comparison of T1, T2, and T3 periods for SNA, Go-Gn and saddle angle was statistically non-significant (P>0.05). Comparison of T1, T2 and T3 periods for SNB, ANB, Basal Plane Angle, Co-Gn, Na-Me, S-Go, LAFH, Co-A, IMPA, U1-Sn, L1-APog, U6-Sv, L6-Sv, G-Sn-Pog, Nasolabial Angle, Upper lip to E line, lower sulcus depth, overjet, and overbite were all statistically significant (P<0.05).Conclusion: The AdvanSync 2 appliance showed statistically significant skeletal, dental and soft tissue changes. The AdvanSync 2 appliance is an efficient appliance for correcting class II malocclusion successfully, with measures taken for the prevention of proclination of lower anteriors.
