When a skeletal Class III malocclusion is diagnosed early enough, the preferred treatment is orthopedic, involving maxillary traction with facemasks - often combined with rapid maxillary expansion - followed by orthodontic correction using Class III elastics. If the problem is not diagnosed until the permanent dentition, however, the treatment options are limited to compensatory or surgical-orthodontic therapy. Surgical treatment may produce the most esthetic results, but is less commonly performed because of its risks and expense.

The relative widths of the maxillary and mandibular arches determine the functional position of the mandible. If the mandibular arch is too wide for the maxillary arch, the patient may reach habituall...

Treatment of patients with anterior open bites continues to be a subject of controversy in the orthodontic literature.1-5 The first choice one has to make is between surgical and nonsurgical treatment...

Dr. Bianca Lau, winner of the 2023 Eugene L. Gottlieb JCO Student of the Year award, presents a difficult case involving an ectopically erupting canine. Three premolars and a hopeless central incisor are extracted, and the impacted canine is moved into the incisor space.

The Jasper Jumper* was designed to produce light, continuous forces for the correction of Class II malocclusions, emulating the effects of devices such as headgears and activators.1 It is similar i...

The following case illustrates the orthodontic and restorative management of a Class III patient with bilateral transposition of maxillary canines to the incisor region, complicated by canine impact...
Volume 48 : Number 7 : Page 405 : Jul 2014
Adult patients sometimes present with unilateral missing premolars. If there are arch-length discrepancies, treatment may involve extraction of other premolars followed by space closure. The spaces ca...

Endosseous implants have been used to provide anchorage control in orthodontic treatment without the need for special patient cooperation.1,2 These implants have limitations, however, including space...

A hybrid tooth- and boneborne appliance is used with anchorage from an obliquely inserted miniscrew to treat a patient with the congenital absence of most permanent teeth. Prosthetic restoration is performed using a nylon-based denture material in both arches.
Volume 56 : Number 10 : Page 597 : Oct 2022
Bodily distalization of the mandibular arch is achieved with miniscrew anchorage in nonsurgical, nonextraction treatment of this skeletal Class III malocclusion. Passive self-ligating brackets allow lighter forces to be applied for sliding mechanics, and intermaxillary elastics are not required.

Orthodontists have tried various methods of intruding the posterior teeth to correct skeletal open bite, including tongue cribs,1 high-pull headgear,2 posterior bite blocks,3 active vertical corrector...

Various methods have been proposed to accelerate orthodontic tooth movement, including local injection of prostaglandin; supplementation with vitamin D; stimulation of periodontal tissue remodeling with vibratory forces, pulsed electromagnetic fields, electrical currents, or low-energy laser devices; and surgical procedures such as corticotomy, alveolar distraction osteogenesis, or periodontal distraction. To date, the most complete body of evidence is for "surgery first" techniques, followed by low-level laser application and corticotomy. More comprehensive studies are needed, even for these methods.

Skeletal Class II malocclusions are most commonly caused by mandibular retrognathia, maxillary prognathia, or a combination of both.1 In cases of mandibular retrognathia, orthopedic forward reposition...

A 5-year-old patient’s pacifier-sucking habit is stopped in the early mixed dentition during a first phase of maxillary expansion. The malocclusion is subsequently corrected in the permanent dentition using a combination of extraoral traction and orthodontic extraction treatment.

Twins H. and L. presented at age 7½ with Class II, division 1 malocclusions. They bore a strong dental resemblance to their father, who at age 40 suffered from severe occlusal problems (Fig. 1). H. ha...
