Long-term Stability of Openbite Correction


Feb 8, 2020 11:15am ‐ Feb 8, 2020 11:45am


Description

Treatment for anterior openbite malocclusion is notorious for being difficult and having high rates of relapse. Many appliances and treatment techniques are available to assist the practitioner in closing an openbite, but reports often lack information on the long-term success of any given treatment. This talk will present a summary of stability reports from across the orthodontic literature, giving clinicians insight into what to expect from the treatments they render.

Learning Objectives:
  • Evaluate the evidence about long term treatment of anterior openbite.
  • Comprehend the pooled stability estimates for surgical and non-surgical treatment of anterior openbite.
  • Counsel anterior openbite patients on what to expect about the stability of their treatment.
