Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case report about the orthodontic treatment of a Class III malocclusion in a black man 22 years 8 months old. The patient's chief complaint concerned the space left by the traumatic loss of the maxillary left central incisor. Not desiring changes in facial appearance, the patient sought an orthodontic solution to his problem. An acceptable result was achieved through maxillary expansion and the reduction of mandibular space. [This case was presented to the American Board of Orthodontics in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the certification process conducted by the Board.]
