Anterior crossbites in early mixed dentition can be transferred from primary to the permanent dentition and have long-term deleterious effects on the growth and development of a child’s teeth and jaws, thus requiring early and immediate treatment. Early age orthodontics can simplify and also eliminate the need for later complex treatment procedures. Furthermore, relapse of treatment is rare hence retention is not necessarily required, thus necessitating proper interceptive treatment at early stages. Various treatment modalities, either removable or fixed in nature, have been discussed to correct this malocclusion.
