BACKGROUND The extensive literature concerning the early treatment of anterior open bite (AOB) is still controversial and covers a wide variety of therapeutic approaches. OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to provide a comprehensive review evaluating the effectiveness of the orthodontic correction of AOB in growing individuals. SEARCH METHODS Search was conducted on PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar, Scielo, and Lilacs databases. Trials… 
Effectiveness of open bite correction when managing deleterious oral habits in growing children and adolescents: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
A literature synthesis evaluating the effectiveness of open bite correction in growing individuals with the use of habit-interception appliances found crib therapy appears to be effective on a short time basis.
Systematic review for orthodontic and orthopedic treatments for anterior open bite in the mixed dentition
TLDR
This review confirms the effectiveness of early treatment of open bite, particularly when no-compliance strategies are employed, and meta-analysis was unfeasible due to lack of standardization, important methodological limitations, and shortcomings of the studies.
The Efficiency of Different Molar Intrusion Methods in The Treatment of Anterior Open Bite:A Systematic Review
TLDR
There is no enough evidence in the orthodontic literature regarding to the most efficient molar intrusion method used for anterior open bite treatment in adults, and the changes that occur in the vertical facial morphology and mandibular rotation are explored.
Effect of molar intrusion with temporary anchorage devices in patients with anterior open bite: a systematic review
TLDR
Current weak evidence suggests that molar intrusion with temporary anchorage devices may cause mandibular counterclockwise autorotation, and future well-conducted and clearly reported multicenter randomized controlled trials that include a non-treatment control group are needed to make robust recommendations regarding the amount of mandIBular rotation during open bite treatments.
Effect of orthodontic management and orofacial muscle training protocols on the correction of myofunctional and myoskeletal problems in developing dentition. A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Although early orthodontic management and myofunctional treatment in the deciduous and mixed dentition children appears to be a promising approach, the quality of the existing evidence is questionable.
Stability of early anterior open bite treatment: a 2-year follow-up randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
Mandibular skeletal linear measurements and vertical dental components have gradually increased with age, manly at pubertal growth spurt and at the establishment of permanent dentition after treatment.
Dentoskeletal changes in open bite treatment using spurs and posterior build-ups: A randomized clinical trial.
Long-term evaluation of rapid maxillary expansion and bite-block therapy in open bite growing subjects: A controlled clinical study.
TLDR
In the long term, the TG showed a significantly greater increase in overbite, reduced extrusion of maxillary and mandibular molars, and a significant decrease in facial divergence when compared with untreated subjects.
Dental arch changes after open bite treatment with spurs associated with posterior build-ups in the mixed dentition: A randomized clinical trial.

Early orthodontic treatment of skeletal open-bite malocclusion: a systematic review.
TLDR
The quality level of the studies was not sufficient enough to draw any evidence-based conclusions, and two controlled clinical trials of early anterior open bite have been performed, and these two studies indicated the effectiveness of treatment in the mixed dentition with headgears or functional appliances.
Systematic review for orthodontic and orthopedic treatments for anterior open bite in the mixed dentition
TLDR
This review confirms the effectiveness of early treatment of open bite, particularly when no-compliance strategies are employed, and meta-analysis was unfeasible due to lack of standardization, important methodological limitations, and shortcomings of the studies.

Orthodontic and orthopaedic treatment for anterior open bite in children.
TLDR
There is weak evidence that the interventions FR-4 with lip-seal training and palatal crib associated with high-pull chincup are able to correct anterior open bite, and recommendations for clinical practice cannot be made based on the results of these trials.

TLDR
Most of the developing malocclusions identified in this study would be amenable to interceptive orthodontics, consisting of space maintenance, crossbite correction and arch expansion.

TLDR
It appears that the vertical chincap is effective in treating skeletal open bite and in decreasing the gonial angle and ramus/corpus relationship.
Changes in the dentition secondary to palatal crib therapy in digit-suckers: a preliminary study.
TLDR
Open bite decreased as incisor angulation, arch length, and arch perimeter decreased, and overjet changes were minimal and statistically insignificant.
