The case reported the use of improved super-elastic Ti-Ni alloy wire (ISW), which was developed by Tokyo Medical and Dental University, to correct a case of Angle Class II division 2 case with unstable mandibular position. An adult 28-year old women came to our clinic with a chief complaint of poor dental alignment. Clinical examination revealed a Class II division 2 malocclusion. The ISW was used to relieve the anterior deep bite and crowding. Intermaxillary elastics (IMEs) were also used to achieve a correct and stable mandibular position and solid interdigitation. The outcome indicated achievement in correction of arch coordination, space management and bite control. In this case, poor dental alignment was rapidly leveled by using ISW. ISW could provide an efficient multidimensional control of this particular malocclusion. After the treatment, the treatment goals were achieved and the patient was pleased with the treatment result.
