Abstract: Introduction: Anterior crowding is the most common case in orthodontic patients. Several methods can be performed such as transverse arch expansion, anterior tooth proclination, teeth distalization in the arch, tooth extraction, or interproximal reduction on tooth enamel. Age, facial profiles, and number of crowding determine the treatment options. One of the most commonly known non-extraction techniques (Interproximal Enamel Reduction) is slicing. This technique is indicated for patients with mild to moderate crowding (4-8 mm), slicing is an alternative to tooth extraction.
