Distraction osteogenesis of the Mandible: problems connected with dental movements.\ud \ud Distraction Osteogenesis(DO) is a techinique that leads to osseus generation and osteosynthesis by means of slow traction applied to the bone and the soft tissues. The present case shows the forward movement of the mandible using the DO in a skeletal class II iperdivergent patient, with a mandibular retrusion. \ud DO provides a slower, and thus more "physiological", solution for skeleton malocclusion than the usual traditional techniques. It is necessary, however, to follow up surgery with an appropriate orthodontic finalization
