    Introduction: One of the most challenging problems for the orthodontist is a developing skeletal Class III malocclusion. Skeletal Class III malocclusions can be characterized by a prognathic mandible, lack of maxillary growth, or both. The orthodontic camouflage treatment can be performed in Class III malocclusion patients with a mild skeletal discrepancy in patients with no growth potential. This article aims to describe the management of dentoskeletal Class III malocclusion by extraction of the upper and lower right premolars without orthognathic surgery. Materials and Methods: The patient was treated by a fixed orthodontic appliance with a straight wire system combined with a vertical U-loop to fix the anterior crossbite combined with Class III intermaxillary elastic. Results: The anterior crossbite was improved, Class I canine and molar relation had a normal overbite and overjet, and the median line was in a line, with an overall improved facial profile. Conclusions: Camouflage treatment with proper extraction can be considered in a nonsurgical treatment of adults.
