This is a case report of a female patient (10 years 3 months) whose chief complaint was edge-to-edge bite. At the initial examination, the diagnosis was severe skeletal Class III. In first-phase treatment, growth modification was planned. Although forward and downward maxillary growth was observed, skeletal Class III still remained. In the second-phase treatment, implant anchorage was applied for distal movement of the mandibular teeth. A favorable occlusal relationship was achieved, and acceptable stomatognathic function was maintained after 2 years of retention.
