Abstract: The aim of early treatment in class III malocclusion is to enhance the growth pattern and to provide purview for future growth. It reduces the hurdle like psychological effect on the child, improves dental and facial esthetics, eliminates anterior functional shift of the mandible, and decreases the chances of later orthognathic surgery. In children with active growth, orthopaedic treatment is usually carried out to obtain maximum skeletal and minimum dental changes. In this article, we present two case reports relating to early orthopaedic management of class III malocclusion with facemask therapy.
