Class-III malocclusions are characterized by an excessively anterior position of the mandible in relation to the maxilla and present a wide variety of clinical forms accompanied by esthetic prejudice.
The purpose of interceptive therapy is to restore normal oro-facial functions to limit the need for orthognathic surgery.
The early implementation of treatment is the key to success.
Key words: Class-III malocclusion / early treatment / orthopedic treatment / missed opportunity
