Various controversies arise on the appropriate treatment time to treat class III
malocclusion at the development age. One reason for delay is that the treatment will
make the treatment period longer. Nevertheless, there are other reasons that believe
the class III malocclusion must be treated as soon as possible. Accuracy of
examination is required to obtain the proper diagnosis to determine treatment
options. Clinical conditions found in the class III malocclusion can be underdeveloped
of maxillae, overdeveloped the mandible, or combination of both. Treatment of class
III malocclusion at the growing age may prevent further severity. A case report of 11year

old boy with class III malocclusion. He is treated with fixed orthodontics to
remove obstruction on the maxillae growth. Many treated progression are obtained,
although it is still continuing to be continued to maintain the treatment
stabilization. Initial treatment for the class III Malocclusion at the growing age can
prevent further severity.
