Orthodontics is indicated when dental cross bite and jaw asymmetry is present. This can be due to functional shift and jaw deviation to one side, resulting in facial asymmetry. Early intervention includes developing the upper jaw so that the lower jaw can fit into it properly.
In this case, chin deviation to one side, slanted plan of occlusion and center-line mismatch was relieved by implementing early orthodontics.
Orthodontics was employed to treat the thumb sucking habit in this patient. Later on, final bite correction was achieved through orthodontics.
