The effect of anterior interferences on occlusal dysfunctions will be discussed. Six specific clinical sequela will be identified, and their clinical implications in orthodontic treatment will be reviewed. Finally, we will review the possible control of anterior interferences during fixed appliance mechanics.
Recognize the presence of anterior interferences.
Identify appropriate procedures to remove anterior interferences during the finishing phases of orthodontic treatment.
Manage orthodontic procedures to avoid anterior interferences.
