Abstract: After phase I splint therapy for the management of posterior condylar displacement, it is not unusual to find that a posterior open bite has been created. Finalization of a new occlusal position may be effected via occlusal equilibration, prosthodontics, orthodontics, orthognathic surgery, or a combination of these procedures. Stabilizing the occlusion with orthodontics in the new orthopedic jaw position requires a systemic approach. This article outlines a strategy for orthodontic finalization in phase II therapy. The splint-guided position is maintained while intra-arch and interarch malocclusions are corrected. The objective in treatment of posterior condylar displacement via splint therapy and orthodontics lies in the provision of a sound condylar position and the movement of the teeth and mandible into a stable and esthetic position.
