Abstract

Question:
In children with prominent lower front teeth (class III malocclusion), how does orthodontic treatment affect outcomes?

Clinical Answer:
Moderate to low-quality evidence shows that the use of facemask therapy in children (mean age 8 years) may lead to short and medium term reductions in prominent lower front teeth and may improve self-esteem, compared with no treatment.

We cannot judge the effects of chin cup or tandem traction bow appliance as only very low-quality evidence is available.
