An anterior open bite is considered to be one of the most dentofacial deformities to treat in orthodontics. The complexity of this malocclusion is attributed to a combination of skeletal, dentoalveolar, functional and habit related factors. There is common agreement amongst orthodontists that patients with anterior open bites are difficult to treat and relapse is common after treatment with orthodontics alone or with orthognathic surgery.

Keywords: Open bite, Bimax, Protrusion.
