The goal of orthodontic treatment is to achieve a stable, functional result with enhanced aesthetics. In the discussed case report, a case with skeletal class III malocclusion is presented with compromised periodontal features and a bilaterally posteriorly edentulous mouth in upper and lower jaw. The case report highlights the corrections achieved and their stability without the support and utilization of the posterior teeth, otherwise deemed essential in the orthodontic treatment planning. The case is treated with orthognathic surgery in upper and lower jaw to improve aesthetic balance of the face. With the use of position screws, the case has been concluded displaying a stable occlusion with improved function. A four-year follow-up and an important note on retention and stability is discussed in the following case report.
