Diagnosis and treatment of open bite malocclusion challenges pediatric dentists who attempt to intercept this malocclusion at an early age. This article updates clinicians on the causes and cures of anterior open bite based on clinical data. Patients with open bite malocclusion can be diagnosed clinically and cephalometrically, however, diagnosis should be viewed in the context of the skeletal and dental structure. Accurate classification of this malocclusion requires experience and training…

Orthodontic treatment of anterior open bite.
It was found that the multifactorial nature of anterior open bite makes its management difficult and various treatment modalities are being used and stability after treatment is still a critical issue as evidence on long term stability of various treatment options is lacking.
A review of the management of anterior open bite malocclusion.
It is concluded that occlusal stability and clinical success may be anticipated when certain criteria are adhered to in all phases of treatment, and that a coordinated surgical-orthodontic treatment approach currently offers the best chance of attaining occlusion stability, improved function and satisfactory aesthetics.
The assessment and treatment of anterior open bite.
The possible causes of open bite malocclusion are reviewed, together with the methods currently available for treatment of this condition and the uncertainties inherent in the prognosis.
Orthodontic and orthopaedic approach in the treatment of skeletal open bite.
Findings were confirmed by regression analysis: rotational changes in the maxillary and mandibular bases explained 46 per cent of variance of the reduction of open bite in the functional group, while 28 and 16 per cent was explained in the Edgewise and Begg groups, respectively.
Anterior open bite treatment with magnets.
The patients who wore acrylic posterior bite-blocks showed improvement in the dental and skeletal vertical relationships, especially during the first months, and the patients who were in the early mixed dentition and had used the magnets intensively showed improvement too.
Treatment of Class II open bite in the mixed dentition with a removable functional appliance and headgear.
It is demonstrated that open bite complicated by a Class II vertical growth pattern can be treated during the mixed dentition with favorable results by a combination of a removable functional appliance and high-pull headgear.

The effect of treatment of skeletal open bite with two types of bite-blocks.
A follow-up of the cases treated with magnetic bite-blocks revealed a tendency for the beneficial effects of the treatment to relapse which possibly could be counteracted by a long phase of active retention.
Prevalence of malocclusion and orthodontic treatment need in the United States: estimates from the NHANES III survey.
In Mexican-Americans compared to the rest of the population, incisor irregularity and both severe Class II and Class III malocclusions are more prevalent, but deep bite and open bite are less prevalent.
