ABSTRACT
Asymmetry in the face and dentition is a naturally occurring phenomenon. Functional asymmetry can result the mandible being deflected laterally if occlusal interferences prevent proper intercuspation in centric relation. Five year old girl was referred to the pediatric department for mandibular deviation. The patient had right posterior crossbite and 2.5mm midline deviation due to dental caries on the primary teeth. The authors used the activator as occlusal splint for eliminating habitual posturing and deprogramming the musculature in the treatment of functional asymmetry and for occlusal stabilization restored the primary molars with cast crowns.
