Treatment of Class III Malocclusion

Definition of Class III Incisor Relationship

Class III malocclusion is an uncommon problem in which the bite of the front teeth can be reversed. This can cause problems in later life because the front teeth can wear in an abnormal way.

In this example the bite was corrected in in two phases. The bite of the front teeth was corrected using a removable appliance - this took about 4 months. Thereafter fixed appliances were used to improve the alignment of the eye (canine) teeth.
