  Anterior crossbite is a malocclusion which may resulted in many complications which can be avoided by early diagnosis and intervention with fixed or removable appliances. This study aimed to presenting different results of treating anterior crossbite during mixed dentition in different age of three attended children by using removable acrylic appliance with bite plan and to summarize the advantages and disadvantages of the other non- selected methods in this study. Clinical examination of children aged 8-10 who attended with chief complaint of crowding and esthetically displeasure showed one or two permanent maxillary incisors position behind the permanent lower incisors in each case. After clinical and radiographical examination, removable acrylic appliances with bite plans were selected to treat the three cases. Treatment periods were 6-8 weeks according to the cases severity. The selected appliance had been discussed in comparison with the non-selected methods. The first step to treat the anterior crossbite is to know the indications of each treatment methods in order to apply the suitable one for each case.
