Several years ago a neighbor boy who I had known since birth came in with a Hawley retainer broken right down the mid palatal suture area. Story: " I dropped it in the sink while brushing" . I produced a similar retainer and challenged him to throw it as hard as possible into a sink, which he proceeded to do several times. We then graduated to the tile floor and once again unable to duplicate the fracture. Finally, " I may have stepped on it".

Took a panoramic radiograph on a 13 year old male today, and look what I saw. Patient has an end-on occlusion. Besides removing deciduous teeth, any suggestions??

Great series John. This is the same way that I deal with these teeth, but I do not use the Nance button. Even after using the "E" with resorbed roots as my anchorage system, the tooth is still stable post-treatment. The only other option that I have found great success in would be shaving the distal aspect of the primary second molar. I started doing this after attending the AAO conference on Early Treatment in Phoenix 3 or 4 years ago. I am very conservative with regards to early treatment and found this to be a wonderful alternative in situations like this. I have the GP shave the distal aspect and then I come in 4 weeks later and add separator.
Happy Holidays ,
