Curve Of Spee in Orthodontic

Journal Title: IOSR Journal of Dental and Medical Sciences (IOSR-JDMS) - Year 2017, Vol 16, Issue 5


Curve of Spee is a naturally occurring phenomenon in the human dentition. This normal occlusal curvature is required for an efficient masticatory system. Orthodontists eventually deal with the curve of Spee in virtually every patient they treat. The aim of this review was to increase our knowledge regarding the development and effects of carve of Spee on dentition and its treatment in exaggerated cases. It would be useful if we have a thorough knowledge of how and when this curve of Spee develops, so that it will help the orthodontists during treatment of their cases.
