Class III malocclusion treatment is challenging to orthodontists because of its genetic basis and tendency for relapse following treatment. In adult patients, this malocclusion can be treated by either camouflage or combined orthodontic and surgical treatment. Since there are complexity in several aspects for Class III malocclusion, particularly in the case where the surgery is required, the aim of this review was to gather information concerning the etiologies, treatment strategies, and treatment considerations, especially for the orthognathic surgical treatment of skeletal Class III patients.
