This article presents a review of data in literature that deals with the use of face mask therapy for the treatment of Class III malocclusion in children. It is noted that the appliance system affects virtually all areas contributing to a Class malocclusion and can be applied to most developing Class III patients regardless of the specific etiology. It discusses the biomechanics of reverse pull headgear and the recommended timing of treatment.
