Comprehensive - Open Bite
Problem: Open bite mainly dental in origin with peg shaped upper lateral incisors.
Solution: Fixed expansion to begin followed by braces and mechanics to prevent posterior tooth eruption.
Notes: Initial problem was caused by a thumb habit. The small upper lateral incisors will be built up by the dentist.
Problem: Marked open bite and top teeth forward.
Solution: Monitored the patient for a number of years and then initiated treatment, extracted upper second pre molars and aligned teeth, improving the bite.
