An openbite affects the ability to bite and chew. The upper and lower incisors do not touch when the jaw is closed and therefore pressure is placed on the back teeth. A common result of this malocclusion is trouble keeping lips closed, tooth wear and unwanted habits such as tongue thrusting. This case required twin blocks to correct the jaw position and braces to correct the deep bite. No extractions were required in this case.
