Comments

During the orthodontic treatment the maxillary and mandibular dental arches were aligned and coordinated.
Maxillary and mandibular incisor inclinations were improved.
Classe III elastics were used in the right side all over treatment.
Lower IPR was performed in order to help the correction of the anterior crossbite. This was done mainly in the right side, so the midline deviation could be improved.
Overjet correction was achieved at the end of treatment. For correction of the reverse smile curve, leveling of the upper Curve of Spee was performed.
