Abstract

Significant forward maxillary movement was determined in both treatment groups (P < 0.01) while the decrease in SNB was significantly greater in the early treatment group compared with the control (P < 0.01). Upper molar tipping and sagittal displacement of point A (point A-T, N perpendicular to FH-A) was found to be significantly greater in the late treatment group compared with the early treatment group (P < 0.05). In both treatment groups, dental and skeletal correction of the Class III malocclusion was achieved.
