Vertical dimension issues are frequently regarded as the most difficult dentofacial problems to treat in clinical practice. The difficulty level increases when vertical dysplasia is paired with sagittal discrepancy. The use of mini-implants in Orthodontics has broadened the scope of orthodontic treatment options. The treatment of a 14-year-old female patient with skeletal Class II malocclusion, slight hyperdivergent profile, and enhanced incisor visibility with four premolar extraction followed by comprehensive orthodontic treatment to correct the convex profile and increased incisor visibility, with two posterior implants for retraction and a midline mini implant for intrusion of the anterior maxillary dentoalveolar segment is described in this case report. The active therapy period was 25 months long.
