Abstract

Early intervention of skeletal class III treatment has always been a laborious task for the Orthodontists. Understanding the nature of circumaxillary suture favors more stable forward movement of maxilla. The aim of this study is to collate all the benefits of Alt-RAMEC, which was first introduced by Loui [3] in combination with protraction facemask providing more efficient and stable results in comparison to standard RME regime in subjects with maxillary hypoplasia.
