Abstract:   (146 Views)
Background and Aim: Anterior crossbite is the most commonly observed developing malocclusion during the mixed dentition period. Dental crossbite occurs due to over-retained deciduous teeth or their delayed exfoliation, impacted or supernumerary teeth, pathologies present around the affected teeth, or dental trauma during the primary dentition period. Various removable and fixed appliances have been used in the literature for correction of crossbite depending on the patient's age, and space availability in dental arch.
Case Presentation: This paper presents a case series of anterior crossbite cases corrected using a simple posterior bite plane appliance. This appliance is simple, easy to fabricate, and takes less time to correct the crossbite.
Conclusion: A posterior bite plane with a palatal plate could be an efficient solution for correction of anterior dental crossbite in the mixed dentition period. This chair-side fabricated appliance achieves correction quickly without harming the periodontal tissue. Developing malocclusions should be immediately identified by dentists to prevent complex treatment options in the future.
