Cross-Bite Treatment and Problems during the Early Stages of Developing of the Dentition in the Frontal Area

  title={Cross-Bite Treatment and Problems during the Early Stages of Developing of the Dentition in the Frontal Area},
  author={Greta Yordanova and Dr. Martin Mladenov and Gergana Gurgurova},
Cross-bite is a severe orthodontic problem, which requires on time treatment. The consequences of neglecting the problem lead to more severe orthodontic problems such as underdevelopment of the maxilla-facial area. The cross-bite can be observed in the frontal segment as well as in the posterior segment. The authors have found out prevalence of the problem from 2% to 8% among the different nations. One of the main reasons for the cross-bite is the ectopic eruption of the teethpalatal for the… Expand

Figures from this paper


Prevalence of malocclusions in the early mixed dentition and orthodontic treatment need.
The findings indicate the early development of progressive malocclusion symptoms which are evidenced in the IOTN and concur with the acronym 'MOCDO' hierarchy (missing, overjet, crossbite, displacement, overbite). Expand
Occurrence of malocclusion and need of orthodontic treatment in early mixed dentition.
This study analyzed the occlusions of 489 children at the onset of the mixed dentition period in an ongoing clinical trial that is investigating the effects of orthodontic intervention in the early mixed Dentition period. Expand
Longitudinal study and cost-benefit analysis of the effect of early treatment of posterior cross-bites in the primary dentition.
The aim of this study was to follow longitudinally a cohort of preschool children regarding the prevalence of lateral cross-bites and the effect of treatments carried out, and to discuss the effectiveness of grinding, the type of treatment and the timing. Expand

  • 2008
P III malocclusion is usually diagnosed in a patient with an anterior functional shift of the mandible resulting from lingually inclined maxillary incisors and early correction of pseudo-Class III anterior crossbite was successful in 100% of 25 consecutively treated cases. Expand
THE ANTERIOR DENTAL CROSS-BITE: the paradigm of interception in orthodontics TÍTULO A mordida cruzada anterior: o paradigma da interceptação em ortodontia
Dental anterior cross-bite, involving one tooth, can be corrected by means of the multi-loop arch wire with a double-helix, even in cases where adequate space for alignment is lacking. Expand
Diagnosis and Treatment of Pseudo-Class III Malocclusion
The association of maxillary expansion and a 2 × 4 appliance can successfully be used to correct anterior crossbites in patients with pseudo-Class III malocclusion. Expand

The Clear Aligner could be used as an alternative in appropriate cases for those who are reluctant with conventional appliances and may be used in cases where the patient has not worn the aligners for a period of time. Expand
Treatment of Anterior Dental Crossbite Using Bonded Resin-Composite Slopes: Case Reports
In each of the cases presented here, dental crossbite was corrected by applying a 3–4 mm bonded resin-composite slope to the incisal edge of the mandibular incisor with an angle 45° to the longitudinal axis of the tooth. Expand
Long term evaluation of orthodontic diagnoses made at the ages of 7 and 10 years.
Repeated orthodontic check-ups are required between the ages of 7 and 15 to evaluate the real requirements for treatment and most misjudgements were made about dental arch crowding at the age of ten, when the orthmodontic condition could be seen more clearly. Expand
A follow-up study of early treatment of pseudo Class III malocclusion.
In young patients diagnosed with pseudo Class III malocclusion and treated early with a 2 x 4 appliance, the overjet was corrected, and the treatment result was maintained in the long term. Expand
