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

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Greta Yordanova, Dr. Martin Mladenov, 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 teeth- palatal for the upper and vestibular for the lower. A cross-bite in the anterior area can lead to the TMJ disorders, class III predisposition, periodontal problems and aesthetic problems. The problem should be treated right way when being diagnosed. The treatment of the problem can include removable or fixed appliances. The removable appliances have advantages, but the biggest disadvantage is the lack of the patients cooperation during the treatment. The patients with mixed dentition are in age when they are not so cooperative. Thats why we prefer to treat the problem with the fixed appliance. We suggest an alternative fixed appliance used in our clinical practice which is not dependable on the patients cooperation.
