This tutorial demonstrates the techniques used in the successful treatment of an adult patient with a Class III skeletal pattern, a midline discrepancy and an edge-to-edge incisor relationship.

The aetiology of midline discrepancies

– three common causes and how to diagnose them
– managing midlines in cases with true skeletal asymmetry

Incorporating aligners into a treatment plan

– using aligners to reduce the time with fixed appliances

Arch wire form and sequencing

– arch wire sequencing for effective tooth movement
– the advantages of using customized working wires

The surgical/non-surgical decision

– the decision between one-jaw and two-jaw surgery
– preparing the case for surgery

Managing arch width discrepancies in Class III

– arch wire modification when using cross-elastics
– the skeletal limitations due to the cortical plate
