Solving A Dolichocephalic Class III Case with a Transverse Constricted Maxillary By Using Modified Mechanical Approaches

Orthodontic treatment of adolescent patients can be challenging due to an altered dentition caused by eruption and modified variations in arch development. These conditions can present situations where the tooth and skeletal arch relationships required for an acceptable and esthetically pleasing occlusion is altered, creating challenging dental and orthodontic issues. The authors will present a case report of an adolescent patient with transverse maxillary constriction, ectopic eruption of maxillary and mandibular canines, Class III molar relationship and dolichocephalic facial profile (Fig. 1).
