Early Treatment of Anterior Crossbite with Eruption Guidance Appliance: A Case Report

Orthodontics

The anterior crossbite is a type of malocclusion in the anteroposterior plane, characterized by having the lower teeth in front of the upper ones. Early evaluation is important to diagnose malocclusion and through interceptive orthodontics to correct it.

During this clinical case, an eruption guidance appliance (EGA) was used in a 05-year-old patient (mixed dentition) for 07 months with satisfactory results.

Diagnosing Early Interceptive Orthodontic Problems – Part 1

Orthodontics

The constant growth and dental craniofacial development of the child requires that it be evaluated by an orthodontist at an early age. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child should be evaluated by an orthodontist before the age of 7.

Prevention is important in these cases, thus we avoid the development of malocclusions such as crowding, open bite, excessive overjet or overbite. Professional intervention is necessary to prevent these problems from worsening.

Enlaces Patrocinados

We share the first part of the Diagnosing Early Interceptive Orthodontic Problems course, which addresses the following topics: examination of mixed dentition, growth and development, posterior and anterior space maintainer, late eruption, retained and supernumerary teeth.

Orthodontics: What is Interproximal Reduction (IPR)

Orthodontics

During orthodontic treatment, a series of procedures are performed and one of them is dental stripping or IPR (interproximal reduction), which consists of reducing the width of the teeth.

We invite you to our English-only dental publishing groups

The interproximal wear should not be greater than 0.5mm and is done with the objective of having small spaces to align the teeth. This procedure does not have negative consequences on the teeth, as long as it is performed by a trained professional.


Overdoing this procedure can cause tooth sensitivity. We share an interesting video from the Braces Explained channel.

How to Wear Your Rubber Bands

Orthodontics

During orthodontic treatment, a series of materials are used that fulfill specific functions and the objective is to successfully complete the treatment. Orthodontic rubber bands are usually made of latex, but they also come in latex-free varieties for those with sensitivities.

Orthodontic rubber bands, also known as elastics, are small elastic bands that hook onto your braces from the top teeth down to the bottom teeth.



These rubber bands lose elasticity so it is necessary to replace them, and for that the patient must have knowledge of how to put them on. The use of these bands is necessary to close spaces created during the treatment.
