The coexistence of a skeletal class III deformity and partial edentulism poses a clinical challenge and requires a comprehensive evaluation followed by a multidisciplinary approach. This clinical report presents the integrated management of a class III malocclusion in a 50-year-old woman with partial edentulism. The patient received adjunctive orthodontic treatment with a rigid temporary anchorage device, a Le Fort I maxillary osteotomy, and prosthodontic rehabilitation with removable maxillary copings, an overdenture, and a mandibular partial removable dental prosthesis with precision attachments.
