John Valentine Mershon Award Lecture: Results from the National Dental PBRN Adult Anterior Openbite Study

May 4, 2019 1:10pm ‐ May 4, 2019 2:10pm


More than 300 patients have been recruited for the national adult anterior openbite study. In this prospective study, patients have been treated with various techniques, including aligners, TADs, and orthognathic surgery. Dr. Huang will describe the pre-treatment characteristics of patients in each of these treatment groups, as well as their end of treatment outcomes. He will also discuss parameters related to patient satisfaction. Finally, preliminary results on stability of treatment will be presented.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define anterior openbite using the openbite severity index.
  • Better evaluate treatment options for adult openbite patients.
  • Recognize the dental and skeletal changes that occur as a result of various openbite treatments.
