Objective: To present the compensatory treatment of a Pattern I female patient with Class II subdivision malocclusion on the left side, mild facial asymmetry and without compromised facial aesthetics, by using the lingual technique. Case report: The treatment was performed by associating the lingual technique, a mandibular protraction appliance (Forsus, 3M Unitek) and partial vestibular appliances of monocrystalline porcelain in the lower left side, to perform the compensatory treatment. Results: it was possible to achieve a stable occlusion with protrusion and right and left laterality, reduced maxillary protrusion and midline correction. Conclusion: the lingual technique has been sought for a large proportion of adult patients and can effectively be used alone or in combination with partial vestibular appliance for treating malocclusions, with comparable results to the labial technique.
