Combining traditional techniques to correct anterior open bite and posterior crossbite.

Abstract

The treatment of anterior open bite often requires the use of skeletal anchorage to prevent excessive eruption of the posterior teeth and consequent downward rotation of the mandible. However, this procedure might not always be accomplished. This article reports the successful treatment of an anterior open bite and a posterior crossbite in a young boy, combining traditional techniques and involving high-pull maxillary traction to help growth to correct the skeletal Class II malocclusion without skeletal anchorage. The vertical dentoalveolar contribution of maxillary growth was also favorable to close the bite, whereas cross-elastics corrected the axial inclination of the mandibular posterior teeth, eliminating the inverted posterior crossbite. The open bite was completely closed with edgewise appliances, which also achieved normal overjet, intercuspation, and incisor exposure on smiling. Traditional mechanics for the treatment of open bite and crossbite remain a useful alternative when patients do not accept skeletal anchorage.
