- •Changes were assessed using a 3D landmark-based superimposition model.
- •Largest dental movement was the mesial movement of mandibular molars (3.70 mm).
- •Largest skeletal changes were an increased mandibular length (1.2 mm).
- •Herbst appliance corrected Class II malocclusion through more dental than skeletal changes.
- •The changes were more significant in the sagittal than in the vertical dimension.
