Key words: Class III malocclusion
The Authors describe classification and diagnostic clues for Class III malocclusion. The “dental” type of Class III malocclusion can be diagnosed on clinical grounds while the “skeletal” type requires X-rays for a more precise classification. The specific feature of Class III malocclusion is that treatment should be started as early as possible (from the third-fourth year of age) due to the tendency of many cases of become more severe along with the growth of cranial bones. The correction can require less than a year. Therefore early diagnosis and referral to the specialist are of utmost importance.
