Anterior Crossbite

Anterior crossbite is an indication for Early Phase I Treatment, since it can result in damage to both the teeth and surrounding tissue.

Anterior crossbite correction is often seen in Class III growers, in which case a facemask may be indicated.

Anterior crossbites if left untreated in the early stages may lead to severe gum recession, damage/wear to the teeth, atypical dental eruption and asymmetry.
