Square, ovoid and tapered are the three main categories of dental arch form.4 In order to achieve an aesthetically pleasant and functionally stable orthod ontic treatment results, it is fundamental to correctly identify and maintain the patient pre-treatment arch form.2,4 According to long-term studies on retention, alteration to the arch form results in more post-treatment changes as compared to when the arch form is maintained.6,9 Evidence suggests that one of the most definitive ways of increasing post-treatment stability is by the maintenance of the pre-treatment arch form where the teeth are meant to be in their stable position.10-12
