Third class malocclusion with cross-bites
Third class malocclusion with cross-bites and traumatic fracture of one incisor edge
1 year and half of fixed orthodontic treatment, ceramic braces
Patient 21 years old was referred to me by a general dentist.
She presented the lower incisors crowded with no space for alignment, one of the lower incisors had a trauma and the incisal (cutting) edge got fractured. She had a very bad hygiene. Because it was no space for the alignment I decided to extract the fractured lower incisors. I decided to remove the braces even the occlusion wasn’t perfect because of the very poor hygiene and the risk of enamel demineralization.
