Multilingual bracket treatment combined with orthognathic surgery in a skeletal class III patient with facial asymmetry.

Abstract

A case report is presented on a female adult with a Class III mandibular protrusion. Resolution of her dentoskeletal problem required a combination of comprehensive multibonded orthodontic mechanotherapy and orthognathic surgery. The patient preferred a multilingual bracket appliance because of esthetics. Both surgical and orthodontic treatment were quite successful in the correction of the facial profile and occlusion. Both psychological and esthetic satisfaction were achieved.
