Abstract

ABSTRACT

This case report discusses the nonsurgical, nonextraction therapy of a female patient, aged 21years, with a skeletal Class III malocclusion, reverse overjet and presence of retained maxillary canine bilaterally. Reverse overjet was corrected by protrusion of maxillary teeth, which contributed to alignment and leveling of teeth.  Following fixed orthodontic treatment, there was considerable enhancement in patient's smile as well as an increase in the patient's confidence and quality of life. The profile changes and treatment results were demonstrated with proper case selection and good patient cooperation with fixed appliance therapy. At the end of treatment the patient was extremely satisfied with the results.
