Orthodontic Management of Occlusal Prematurity in Early Mixed Dentition
Abstract: Premature contact is one of the most well-known occlusion disorders and can interfere mandibular movement remarkably. The masticatory system has ability to respond with the wide range of adaptive modalities. These adaptations can be functional, structural and/or behavioral. Therefore, this system, like any biological system, cannot be viewed as a rigid and immutable. This paper presents a clinical case which is demonstrating orthodontic management of occlusal prematurity in early mixed dentition by using a protrusive arch wire.
