In this session, you will identify anterior and posterior crossbites and discover the benefits and possible harm of interceptive treatments. You will also find out when and how to use removable, fixed and functional appliances in the treatment of crossbites.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • List the benefits and possible harm of interceptive treatments
  • Identify when and how to use appliances to correct crossbites
  • List the differences between removable and fixed appliances to correct crossbites
