The rationale and indications for equilibration in the primary dentition
One type of malocclusion in the primary dentition is posteri crossbite caused by premature deflective occlusal interferences. The primary canines are the teeth that most frequently contribute to a laterally guided centric occlusion that creates a functional malocclusion. Because this is not a self-corrected situation, these types of posterior crossbites should be identified early and evaluated for possible corerction through occlusal equilibration. A case that illustrates early correction of a unilateral functional posterior crossbite by equilibration and the 5-year results are presented.
