The relationship between dental occlusion and posture is currently a topic of great interest and at the same time very controversial; in literature there is not enough scientific evidence of cause-effect for the presence of bias in research for postural evaluation. However, it is frequent to observe the cranio-cervical postural effects between malocclusions and, in hindsight, also the effects of some orthodontic therapies....

Interceptive orthodontic therapy is based on treatment during the most active phase of patient’s skeletal and dental growth aimed at influencing it and removing functional disorders underlying the onset of malocclusions. The aim of this work is to highlight the importance of the early treatment of pathological frenulum and associated malocclusions, since the first years of life, using minimally invasive surgical techniques and atraumatic devices....

Appliances are individualized elastodontic devices indicated for dis-functional disorder. Tongue is guided on the palate, muscles are stretched and skeletal growth become harmonious with A.M.C.O.P.® . Model TC provides the maxillary advancement and stop the mandible growth through an anterior sliding plane. The aim of this study was to illustrate two cases with anterior crossbite during the primary dentition treated with A.M.C.O.P.® TC....
