What Is Pseudo Class III?

September 6, 2013

Pseudo Class III refers to a function of habit rather than a hereditary abnormality of the teeth and jaws . This condition often occurs when an individual’s bite habits cause the teeth to be misaligned, causing the lower teeth to bite forward and giving the upper teeth the appearance of a Class III—or those orthodontic problems caused by genetic factors such as a poorly developed lower jaw.

Pseudo Class III malocclusions can be corrected through interceptive treatment. This means that you will want to have your child assessed while they still have a mix of both primary and permanent teeth, as this will help your orthodontist identify problems before they can lead to permanent tooth loss, facial growth, and airway structure.
