ABSTRACT

Class III malocclusion or anterior crossbite is commonly seen in Asian. This problem is easily recognized by dentists and parents. During the primary dentition period, anterior crossbite with functional shift and deep overbite could develop to skeletal protrusive mandible. So, early and proper diagnosis of anterior crossbite which needs prompt treatment is important. These cases showed the early management of crossbite with functional shift in primary dentition using intraoral removable appliance resulting in improvement of intermaxillary relationship. And I analyzed the positional change and the dimensional change during treatment with lateral cephalometric x-ray analysis. Our patients showed vertical dimensional change of lower anterior facial height and clockwise rotation which results crossbite correction in 1 year of treatment period.
