Abstract

Anterior openbites cause impaired masticatory, malfunction of tongue, speech defects, disuse atrophy of teeth and periodontal tissue, esthetic problem. It is corrected by some available orthodontic methods according to its etiologic factors and growth stage. Removable appliances with tongue crib, spring loaded occlusal bite block, M.E.A.W. with rubber elastics, vertical chin cap and high pull head gear are selected for its correction. Extraction is considered for preventing wedging effect and Adenoidectomy is performed as adenoid cause mouth breathing. In the case of treatment of anterior openbites, combined therapy acquire better results than single treatment method. Removal of etiologic factors and accurate diagnosis is the best way of prevention of its recurrence.
