Anterior open bite is difficult to treat because it is can be caused by the interaction of multiple etiologic factors such as heredity, unfavorable mandibular growth patterns, imbalance between the posture of the jaws, nasopharyngeal airway obstruction, digit-sucking habits, and tongue posture and activity. Proper diagnosis and treatment planning, successful treatment, and retention are important to the long-term stability of open bite treatment. In this lecture, various treatment modalities (including TADs) for anterior open bite and relapse will be discussed. After the lecture, clinicians will be able to treat and finish anterior open bite cases more efficiently and successfully while minimizing the chance of relapse.
