Adult patients with skeletal Class III malocclusion may have several available treatment options: (1) a combination of orthodontic treatment and orthognathic surgery. (2) camouflaged orthodontic treatment with various extraction selections. In this case report, we use miniscrew anchorage to retract mandibular incisors and control labial tipping of maxillary incisors. Not only improving dental occlusion without extraction of teeth (except for wisdom teeth) but also achieving a balanced profile in only 14 months of treatment time.
