Abstract
<jats:sec id="st1"> <jats:title>Objective</jats:title> <jats:p>Orthodontic camouflage treatments improve occlusion but might worsen facial profile in patients with Class III malocclusion. It has been reported that surgical clockwise rotation of maxillomandibular complex (MMc) improves facial profile by reducing chin prominence and chin throat length in patients with Class III malocclusion. The purpose of this report was to illustrate two orthodontic techniques for clockwise rotation of the MMc in late teenagers with Class III malocclusion and preliminarily evaluate their clinical effects.</jats:p> </jats:sec> <jats:sec id="st2"> <jats:title>Patients and Methods<...
