About 10 or 12 years ago I seemed to notice an increased number of children with a mesiodens. Today I see very few. However, over the last 2 years I have seen an increased number of patients who have grown into anterior x-bites and Class III malocclusions. Am I alone in this observation, or are others seeing the same thing? I curiously await your responses.

Thank you.

I think the two genetic patterns are related. I remember hearing at a recent lecture (Dr. Bob Boyd??) that the genetic pattern for anterior cross-bite and the presence of mesiodens may be related, at least that was the observation of the speaker.
