Tricks of the Trade:  Anterior Crossbite Correction: Bevelled Resin Turbos

Feedback:  0 comments, 0 ratings

Abstract: Anterior crossbites are often treated interceptively to reduce the risk of enamel wear, periodontal loss of attachment or mandibular displacement. Although various techniques have been described, treatment usually entails the use of a removable or fixed appliance.1 This Trick of the Trade describes an alternative to standard methods for treatment, which involves the chairside placement of lingually bevelled composite resin turbos on the mandibular teeth, thereby nudging the maxillary incisor labially and the mandibular incisor lingually (Figures 1–3).2–6
