Summary of Speech
Skeletal Class III Malocclusion: Early-Stage Treatment And Stability
Skeletal Class III is one of the most difficult malocclusions to be treated by orthodontists, and is one of the most complex problems in orthodontics in terms of diagnosis and treatment.It is very important to make a detailed evaluation in treatment planning in order to obtain stable treatment results after growth. Treatment approaches in individuals with skeletal Class III malocclusion vary depending on the jaw from which the malocclusion originates and the growth-development period of the individual. Treatment planning, treatment timing and prognosis are important. The success of the treatment is measured by the stable results.
In this lecture, the conditions to be considered at the end of the treatment in children with Class III malocclusions will be presented and the factors affecting stability will be discussed on case samples.
