The correction of anterior open bite in the mixed dentition: treatment or over-treatment? Early treatment of the anterior open bite is a common, widespread treatment, which involves sometimes multiple clinical procedures: active orthodontic treatment and correction of the dysfunctional habits with a large waste of financial and biological costs. Therefore, also considering the significant possibility of self-improvement in the prepubertal phase, active early treatment should not aim to the active correction of the AOB, but only to other aspects of the malocclusion and to the interception of dysfunctional habits.

Abstract

The correction of anterior open bite in the mixed dentition: treatment or over-treatment? Early treatment of the anterior open bite is a common, widespread treatment, which involves sometimes multiple clinical procedures: active orthodontic treatment and correction of the dysfunctional habits with a large waste of financial and biological costs. Therefore, also considering the significant possibility of self-improvement in the prepubertal phase, active early treatment should not aim to the active correction of the AOB, but only to other aspects of the malocclusion and to the interception of dysfunctional habits.
