Most of the patients reporting for the correction of proclined teeth have an underlying skeletal Class II base relation; management of these cases during the growth phase early in the treatment when patient compliance is at their best is advantageous. Although various functional appliances are available for use, the Carriere Motion Appliance (CMA) is simple, not bulky, and easy for the patient to adapt, as there is no bulky acrylic that would hinder the speech or during eating. This case report presents a 14-year-old patient treated with the CMA.
