A quasi-experimental prospective clinical study was performed, making interventions with bimaxillary acetate plates (which worked as anchorage for intermaxillary elastics with a Class III vector) in a sample of 26 individuals of both sexes, between 3 and 9 years of age, who were selected for convenience of the Dentistry Care Center of the Dentistry Department at Universidad de Antioquia following these inclusion criteria: between 3 and 9 years of age with skeletal mesiorelation cephalometrically confirmed, anterior crossbite or edge-to-edge bite, with or without posterior crossbite (uni- or bilateral).
