Management of skeletal Class III malocclusion requires a comprehensive approach since several factors such as severity of reverse overjet and facial divergence govern the treatment plan. Management of the nongrowing skeletal Class III individual with moderate-to-severe skeletal discrepancy is either by surgical management or orthodontic camouflage. Although various reports emphasize that both the treatment options are equally successful, the degree of correction which can be achieved differs. This report describes the comprehensive management of a case of severe skeletal Class III malocclusion through a combined surgical-orthodontic approach.
