Common Orthodontic Problems

Pseudo Class III

Pseudo Class III, particularly in younger patients, is a function of habit and not necessarily hereditary and thus not a true skeletal Class III.

A misaligned bite may cause the lower teeth to bite forward of the upper teeth giving the appearance of a Class III.

Interceptive treatment is imperative to prevent abnormal growth of both the upper and lower jaws.
