Abstract

Introduction: Crossbite is a discrepancy in buccolingual relationship of the upper and lower teeth. When the labial surface of the lower anterior teeth occlude labial to the labial surface of the upper anterior teeth is called as anterior cross bite. The aetiology for anterior crossbite can be vary. Crossbite of all of the incisors is usually rarely found in children who do not have class III skeletal jaw relationship. A crossbite relationship of one or two anterior teeth, however, may develop in a child who has good facial proportions. A comprehensive understanding of the problem by the practitioner is a key element for successful management.
