The developing skeletal Class III malocclusion is one of the most challenging problems confronting the practicing orthodontists. True Class III malocclusion is rare when compared with Class II and Class I and may develop in children as a result of inherent growth abnormality. Treatment should be carried out as early as possible with the aim to prevent it from becoming severe. The case was treated with biphasic therapy, i.e., orthopedic appliance followed by fixed orthodontic treatment. Facemask helps resolving the skeletal discrepancy.
