Abstract

Class III malocclusions pose a challenge to the orthodontist, and conventional treatment options to treat this condition in an adult patient include orthognathic surgery, or orthodontic camouflage. Up until a few years ago, orthodontic camouflage for correction of a Class III problem involved retroclination of the lower anterior teeth and proclination of the upper anterior teeth. The advent of skeletal anchorage systems has opened up new vistas in camouflaging Class III malocclusion due to mandibular prognathism. This article reviews the various treatment planning considerations, both clinical and radiographic, for camouflage of Class III malocclusion by miniscrew assisted distalization of the mandibular dentition, and also discusses treatment options, procedures, biomechanics and possible pitfalls.
