Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the skeletal changes occurring during and after chincap therapy. The subjects of this study, with a mean age of 9 years 3 months, consisted of 27 patients; all of whom possessed an anterior crossbite. Of these patients, 15 had skeletal Class III and the remaining 12 had skeletal Class I malocclusions with anterior crossbites. The applied total force with the chincap was 600 grams and the mean treatment period was 12 months.
