A conventional yet effective approach to relieve severe crowding due to ectopically erupted lower incisors: A case report

AUTHOR(S): Mahima Gupta, Shalu Jain, Pradeep Raghav, Stuti Mohan and Shreeyesh Gupta
ABSTRACT:Traditionally, patients with severe crowding are treated by extracting teeth, using fixed lingual expansion arch, schwarz appliance or jockey wires. In this case report, an alternative approach for relieving severe lower anterior crowding in 12 year old boy was done. a non extraction treatment protocol was followed using expanded Australian and Stainless Steel archwires. The apparent benefit of this approach was related not only to the esthetic improvement of the smile resulting from elimination of the anterior crowding, but also an alternative conservative and conventional treatment protocol was followed.
