Open Bite Causes and Treatment for Adults and Children
Open bite occurs when the top and bottom front teeth do not touch as the back teeth are touching.
This can result in difficulty biting, chewing, swallowing, and can lead to a speech impediment.
Even when fully biting, the lips can not completely close leaving an awkward appearance. Open bites can result from excessive thumb sucking, overuse of pacifiers, tongue thrusting, mouth breathing,
If not corrected, an open bite can lead to clicking or popping of the jaw and also may cause head,
neck, and jaw pain. Open bites can be effectively corrected with braces but in severe cases surgery
may be required. Dr. Jason B. Cope has developed alternative treatment methods to correct open bites, possibly eliminating the need for surgery. Use of the Unitek® Temporary Anchorage Device System is one such method.
