Class III malocclusion worsens with age, necessitating early orthopaedic therapy to restore facial equilibrium and regulate maxillofacial growth and development. A 12-year-old prepubertal male with a Class III skeletal base, anterior crossbite, retrognathic maxilla, and prognathic mandible is described in this report. To treat the anteroposterior plane and improve the profile, the ALT-RAMAC approach was used with reverse pull headgear. Following that, fixed mechanotherapy was used to get the desired effects. After that, the patient was monitored for another three years.
