Abstract

Class III malocclusion is a growth-related challenging condition for orthodontists. We present a case of a 11-year-old girl with a skeletal class III malocclusion with bilateral cross bite, and a functional shift of the lower dental midline. A multiphase clear aligners' treatment was scheduled with the aim of removing all dental interferences which involved an anterior displacement of the mandible. At one-year follow-up, clear aligners’ therapy resulted in skeletal and dental improvements. Clear aligners therapy represents a valid alternative to fixed appliance therapy in the early interception of class III malocclusion. The present manuscript was prepared following the CARE guidelines.
