crossbite

 [kros´bīt″]
malocclusion in which the mandibular teeth are in buccal version (or completely lingual version in posterior segments) to the maxillary teeth.

cross·bite

(kros'bīt),
An abnormal relationship of one or more teeth of one arch to the opposing tooth or teeth of the other arch due to labial, buccal, or lingual deviation of tooth position, or to abnormal jaw position.

crossbite

A form of malocclusion in which there is a reversal of the normal relationship of the mandibular and maxillary teeth, with lateral displacement of opposing teeth.
Complications Periodontitis, caries.

Thirty patients (15 males and 15 females) were selected from September 2014 to August 2017 in the Department of orthodontics, Shanxi Medical University Stomatological Hospital.Inclusion criteria: 1) ages: 6-10 years; 2) skeletal class III malocclusion; 3) mesial molars relationship; 4) anterior crossbite and reverse overjer.

Mandibular incisor extraction is most frequently indicated in mild or moderate Class III malocclusions with an edge-to-edge occlusion of the incisors or anterior crossbite and minimal overbite or open bite [21].
Every patient that met the inclusion criteria and provided consent or whom consent was provided for underwent an oral examination and the measurement of his or her occlusal characteristics (including overjet, overbite, maxillary midline diastema, anterior crossbite, posterior crossbite, incisor irregularity, and Angle's molar classification).
No distance between upper and lower incisors was defined as normal overjet (0 mm); increased overjet was recorded when the distance was > 2 mm, and anterior crossbite was recorded when the distance was < 0 mm.
Fusion, gemination and no dental accompanied by anterior crossbite. Case report
Mesiocclusion skeletal relationships are connected to an osseous alteration usually accompanied by Class III dental relationships and anterior crossbite. (1) Such a disharmony may be the result of alterations in size (big mandible and small maxillary), or in the position of both structures (forward-oriented mandible and/or retropositioned maxilla).
This is the normal overjet relationship, which ranges from 1 to 3 mm.(2) Abnormal anterior relationships include an excess overjet, edge-to-edge contact, and an anterior crossbite in which the maxillary incisors are posterior to the mandibular incisors (figure 3).
Anterior crossbite is defined as an abnormal reversed relationship of a tooth or teeth to the opposing teeth in the buccolingual or labiolingual direction, and it is also known as reverse articulation [1].
Plaster models made during orthodontic initial records for each patient were used to calculate the following occlusal trait measurements: Angle's classification, maxillary overjet, mandibular overjet (reverse overjet), anterior crossbite, posterior crossbite, scissors bite, overbite, openbite, crowding, spacing and dental midline discrepancy.
