Solving the Mystery of the Anterior Open Bite in Adults

Feb 9, 2020 9:15am ‐ Feb 9, 2020 10:00am


Adult anterior open bites are a particularly difficult diagnostic and treatment scenario that will be explored in this presentation. Evaluating, establishing and maintaining an orthopedically stable occlusion is a foundation piece for the orthodontic practitioner. The interaction of muscles, teeth, jaws and TMJs will be explored with the use of imaging. Key anatomic variables that negatively influence occlusion will be singled out and discussed in this presentation.

Learning Objectives:
  • Develop a differential diagnosis and decision tree for adult anterior open bites.
  • Identify the discriminating features for each open bite cause.
  • Develop strategies to determine if the open bite cause is stable or active.
