Özet

Objectives: To investigate the sagittal movement of the maxilla due to rapid maxillary expansion (RME) in subjects with Class III malocclusions and compare it to the amount of anterior movement of maxilla obtained with RME/FM (facemask) treatment in order to determine whether RME alone could be satisfactory in correcting particular Class III malocclusions.
