Treatment of anterior skeletal open-bite deformity.


Two patients with severe skeletal anterior open-bite have been presented. Treatment of these patients was accomplished mainly by mandibular repositioning (Case 1 by orthodontic means and Case 2 by a combination of surgery and orthodontics) and by an orthodontic change in the mandibular occlusal plane. A review and a discussion of the cause of this deformity were presented.
