Aim:: To show the Targis-Vectris retention technique, illustrating its features and clinical applications in periodontally compromised patients. Methods: The Targis-Vectris technique is constituted by an esthetic external layer (Targis) combined with and supported by a metal-free structure (Vectris). An adult female with a full Class II malocclusion and compromised periodontal condition with significant bone loss on the maxillary central incisor was treated. Before debonding, a fiber-reinforced splint was placed on the palatal surface of the maxillary anterior teeth, using the Targis-Vectris method, to permit long-term stability. The final result remained stable at 5 years posttreatment. Results: The correction of the Class II malocclusion took 24 months. The Targis-Vectris method ensured maintenance of tooth position and periodontal condition. Conclusion: The Targis-Vectris technique represents a useful procedure for splinting maxillary teeth in selected periodontally compromised patients. The 5-year posttreatment follow-up visit showed no relapse. Correct occlusal relationships are necessary to reduce the risk of breakage.
