Long-term stability of skeletal Class III patients treated with splints, Class III elastics, and chincup



Long-term stability of skeletal Class III patients treated with splints, Class III elastics, and chincup



American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics 123(4): 423-434



Long-term results from orthopedic management of skeletal Class III malocclusions are sparse. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the stability of results after facial growth and treatment with splints, Class III elastics, and chincup (SEC III) and to investigate the main determinants of relapse. Data from pretreatment, posttreatment, and long-term (at least 3 years after retention) serial cephalograms of 52 patients who received SEC III treatment were studied: only those with long-term data when growth had ceased (women over 18 and men over 21 years of age) were selected. At the end of the follow-up period (an average of 9 years), only 6 of the 52 patients had clinical relapse (overjet
