ABSTRACT:A canted occlusal plane is the cause of unaesthetic smile, and also represents a challenge, due to the complex orthodontic procedures involved in its treatment. LeFort I osteotomy with asymmetric maxillary impaction is often used to correct this problem. However, canting caused by extruded teeth can be corrected easily with normal orthodontic appliances like intrusion arches. The correction occurs through intrusion of the extruded teeth on one side of the maxilla. A 41-year-old female with canted maxillary occlusal plane was treated in this manner showing the possibility of correcting occlusal plane canting with intrusion arch thus avoiding surgical intervention.
