Abstract
This case report illustrates the successful nonsurgical treatment of an adult with a skeletal Class III malocclusion exacerbated by a functional anterior shift that resulted in a severe overclosure of the mandible and a reverse smile line. To maximize the soft tissue and smile esthetics while idealizing the occlusion, active clockwise rotation of the mandible was induced along with mandibular molar uprighting and sequential leveling. In the maxilla, full arch distalization was achieved after second molar extraction. The treatment provided a satisfying esthetic and functional outcome and has remained stable.
