ABSTRACT:When it comes to treatment planning in orthodontics “Timing is everything”. It is suggested that almost all types of malocclusion could be beneﬁted from early treatment. The aim of “early” orthodontic treatment is to correct existing or developing skeletal, dentoalveolar, and muscular imbalances to improve the orofacial environment before the permanent teeth eruption is complete. The “epitome of dynamic orthodontic approach” is the beginning of the treatment in the deciduous dentition. It is here we have growth to assist us, hard tissues are highly responsive to forces applied and soft tissue shows a higher degree of adaptability, thereby enhancing the stability of results. Early intervention can simplify or eliminate the need for later treatment. Mixed dentition treatment also may ensure normal development of the teeth and jaws. The functional improvement coupled with the psychological benefit gives a significant advantage for treating potentially challenging mixed dentition problems.
