    AUTHORS: Himawan Halim, Ivan Halim

    KEYWORDS: Malocclusion, Orthognatic Surgery

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Stomatology, Vol.5 No.12, December 25, 2015

    ABSTRACT: Background: Treatment of skeletal Class III malocclusion in growing patient with an anterior crossbite and open bite is challenging due to unpredictable results and potentially unfavorable growth. Growth modification in adult patients is not an alternative approach. Objective: Case report of a patient with Class III malocclusion in adult and anterior crossbite and open bite was treated with combine fixed appliances and orthognatic surgery. Treatment procedure: Treatment of anterior cross bite and open bite was completed in two phases. The first phase was to correct the dental alignment align and arch coordination with fixed orthodontic appliance. The second phase was to correct the skeletal discrepancy with orthognatic surgery. Conclusions: Orthognatic surgery is a good approach in treating anterior cross bite and open bite relating to skeletal problems in adult period. Changes in profile and occlusion were very obvious.
