The aim of the present study is to represent the orthodontic treatment of a young patient with a skeletal Class III malocclusion(Wits Appraisal −9 mm), in which the extractions of the first lower premolars were performed to obtain a class III camouflage using direct temporary anchorage devices (TADs). The patient reported a history of three years of orthodontic treatment at another clinic and the radiographic evaluation revealed an important impairment of the upper root incisors. A treatment was performed with a fixed appliance in the upper and lower arches using an archwire sequence of 0.16 CuNiTi, 19 × 25 CuNiTi, 19 × 25 SS and was carried out in 18 months. Post-treatment records of our patient show a control of facial esthetics from the frontal and lateral perspectives, with a harmonious soft-tissue profile. A Class I canine was achieved and her overbite and overjet were normalized by retracting the mandibular anterior teeth and carrying out a bodily mesialization of the posterior sector into the extraction space. In conclusion, the “pseudoankylosis system” used in this case allowed the desired result to be achieved with minimal change to the lower incisal inclination and without overloading the anterior upper and lower sectors, thus reducing the risk of further root resorption and patient compliance.
