A quasi-experimental prospective clinical study was performed, making interventions with bimaxillary acetate plates (which worked as anchorage for intermaxillary elastics with a Class III vector) in a sample of 26 individuals of both sexes, between 3 and 9 years of age, who were selected for convenience of the Dentistry Care Center of the Dentistry Department at Universidad de Antioquia following these inclusion criteria: between 3 and 9 years of age with skeletal mesiorelation cephalometrically confirmed, anterior crossbite or edge-to-edge bite, with or without posterior crossbite (uni- or bilateral).
Use intermaxillary elastics until the upper posterior teeth are in anterior position balance with the lowers.
Usually conventional mechanism for orthodontic anchorage control can be either extraoral or intraoral that is headgear or intermaxillary elastics.
