ABSTRACT

We report a case series of ten patients who presented with anterior open bite. The initial evaluation included clinical pictures, lateral cephalometric radiographs and dental casts. They were assessed according to the severity of the open bite and the cause (skeletal or dental). They all underwent orthodontic treatment as an initial step. Five patients with dental open bite underwent molar intrusion using titanium screws and five patients underwent maxillary Le Fort I impaction. We report the mandibular changes associated with these different treatment modalities with improved esthetics.
