In a pseudo-Class III malocclusion, a functional mandibular shift can disguise an underlying skeletal discrepancy. This report from Drs. Takane, Keluskar, Jaisinghani, Malagan, and Jatti describes the correction of such a relationship, which had resulted in an extreme reverse overbite, in a 25-year-old patient using a simple 2 × 4 appliance.
