The aim of this retrospective clinical study was to evaluate dental arch, skeletal, dentoalveolar, and soft tissue profile changes following treatment of Class III malocclusion by means of the Function Regulator (FR-3) appliance. The study sample consisted of 14 growing patients (seven boys and seven girls) with a mean age of 9.7 ± 1.1 years presenting Class III malocclusion. They were treated with an FR-3 appliance exclusively for a period of 2.4 ± 0.6 years. Dental casts and lateral… CONTINUE READING
