Early treatment of skeletal Class III: a case report.J Indian Soc Pedod Prev Dent 2001; 19(4):148-51JI
Skeletal class III malocclusion is a growth related facial deformity which increases if left untreated. Skeletal class III malocclusion should be corrected as soon one recognises the initial signs. Mixed dentition period is the time of greatest opportunity for occlusal guidance and growth modulation. A case of skeletal class III malocclusion in mixed dentition is presented, which was treated with a Delaire face mask therapy to modulate the craniofacial growth and to achieve a balanced profile.
