Orthodontic intervention in the mixed dentition does not always prevent orthodontic treatment in the permanent dentition; however, there can be significant advantages to early intervention. Identifying certain problems at an early age offers a possibility either to redirect skeletal growth or to improve the occlusal relationship. The primary objective of managing orthodontic problems in the mixed dentition stage is to intercept or correct malocclusions that would otherwise become progressively more complex in the permanent dentition or result in skeletal anomalies. The purpose of this article is to discuss how to identify and treat such common situations and malocclusions in the mixed dentition that lend themselves to early intervention
