Severe anterior open-bite malocclusion.

Abstract

This case report describes the treatment of a severe anterior open bite, Class II malocclusion with a history of dummy sucking. The 9-year-old girl presented with a significant anteroposterior and vertical discrepancy. Her face was convex with procumbent lips. She had an anterior open bite of 9 mm, an overjet of 8 mm, and a transverse maxillary deficiency. In consultation with the parents and patient, a nonsurgical therapy was elected, with the goals of reducing protrusion and closing the anterior open bite.
