- Skeletal Class III malocclusion is some of the most complex cases to treat. Currently, orthognathic surgery and orthodontic camouflage are the standard technique for treating this condition in fully growing patients. With skeletal Class III orthodontic patients camouflage can be used to treat milder cases with Class III elastic. When patient declines orthodontic surgery, camouflage treatment with Class III elastics is a valid option. In this case report will showing two patients with skeletal Class III and the treatment for the first patient using fixed appliance and Class III elastic, the second patient using camouflage treatment and extraction of both the mandibular first premolars, and Class III elastic. The result of treatment are for the first patient malocclusion could be treated with Class III elastic and orthodontic movement, and the second patient the treatment technique needed extraction of the mandibular first premolar and used Class III elastic. As a conclusion are the skeletal Class III malocclusion could be treated with or without extraction of mandibular first premolar and the treatment have to use Class III elastics.
