|Early treatment can have numerous benefits for patients presenting with anterior crossbite in mixed dentition. As this malocclusion seldom corrects by itself, early orthodontic intervention can improve function, esthetics and self-esteem. Various treatment options such as removable and fixed appliances have been suggested by different authors in the past literature. In this case series report, 4 patients aged from 8 to 10 y/o diagnosed with unilateral or bilateral anterior crossbite were treated with lower inclined bite plate combined with or without orthodontic bracket bonding based on the amount of teeth involved. With careful observation, each case was corrected within a short period and followed up for at least 12 months. The procedure has shown to be effective and simple if the symptoms are diagnosed and intervention occurs in the early age of mixed dentition.|
