Skeletal Class III malocclusion is considered a syndrome with presentation differing in phenotype as well as genotype and inheritance. Class III malocclusion with retrognathic maxilla has a good prognosis for early treatment and face mask therapy is the traditional appliance of choice. However, patient compliance is a major deterrent. Modified tandem appliance is an effective alternative to face mask in bringing about the requisite changes along with excellent patient compliance, attributed to its minimalist design.
