What are the limitations of anterior expansion of the lower arch?


Positioning of the lower incisors used to be one of the fundamentals in orthodontic treatment planning. At present, to avoid extraction treatment and as a side effect of fixed class II treatment, many orthodontic treatments are finished with the lower incisors in a more proclined position. In the presented lecture, possible implications of this treatment approach on stability and on soft tissues as well as possible periodontal concerns are discussed by the help of abundant clinical cases seen in daily practice.
