LOCKS, Arno et al. Posterior crossbite: a more didactic classification. Rev. Dent. Press Ortodon. Ortop. Facial [online]. 2008, vol.13, n.2, pp. 146-158. ISSN 1415-5419. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1415-54192008000200017.
The aim of this work is to present a new posterior crossbite classification, being this more didactic and of easy understanding, differing from the others in your nomenclature, preserving, however, the basic principles that govern the Orthodontics. This new classification makes the posterior crossbite diagnosis process systematized and accurate, assisting the clinician in the elaboration of a suitable treatment plan and as consequence, leading to more favorable prognostic of this malocclusion.
