Timing of orthodontic treatment especially for children with developing Class III malocclusions has always been somewhat
controversial. Pseudo class III malocclusion is recommended to be treated early
as this type of malocclusion doesn’t diminish with age. Untreated pseudo class
III may lead to serious problems. The case
report describes pseudo class III in primary dentition successfully
treated by using Protrusive Arch Wire.
