Abstract

The management of Class III malocclusion
involves several considerations to be
taken at the time of making therapeutic
decisions, such as age, sex, the technique
used, general conditions of the patient,
collaboration and aesthetic requirements.
This is a malocclusion that demands quick
and effective action to ensure aesthetic and
functional conditions as a priority. This
report presents a case of a 14 years with
a skeletal Class III malocclusion treated
initially with facial mask and Mc .Namara
breaker, in order to make a posteroanterior
protraction of the maxilla and the mandible
sagital control, then continue with the technique
of MEAW multi-ansas, thus achieves
a dentoalveolar compensation and better
occlusal adjustment.
