A case report is presented of a mild skeletal Class III malocclusion, with a closed bud phenomena in the upper left quadrant, represented by a severely rotated maxillary central incisor, and a buccally placed canine enclosing a palatally placed lateral, with a wide gaping maxillary median diastema, compromising esthetics and articulation. The case was treated with preadjusted edgewise appliance therapy (Roth's prescription) without extractions, to restore functional esthetics.
