    Where are the borders of dental compensation in Class III patients

    Gold standart for Class III skeletal malocclusion is orthognathic surgery although some patients demand for camouflage treatment which may be possible in some borderline cases if profile , function and periodontal condition is allowing. The protocols for Class III camouflage were used to be Class III elastics with or wihout maxillary expansion, extraction protocols and even face mask for upper dental arch mesialization which we rely on patient cooperation for all. On the other hand common use of mini screws and increasing performances expanded the borders of orthodontic correction. Recently it is possible to treat more severe Class III cases with mini screws and we may not need to rely on patient cooperation. One of the options is distalization of entire lower dental arch. During this lecture, case presentations will be made related to these protocoles and treatment concepts will be discussed in the light of scientific evidence.
