Open bite

What causes an open bite?

In many cases, an open bite develops in childhood due to long and strong thumb sucking. Another reason for an open bite can be a malpositioning of the jaw. The causes may be genetic or due to altered jaw growth caused by vitamin deficiency.

Side effects and treatment

In addition to functional disorders, an open bite also has an impact on facial aesthetics. The consequences of an open bite can include:

  • Difficulty in chewing food
  • Lisp and disorder of speech development in children
  • Predisposition to unhealthy mouth breathing
  • Crooked teeth
  • Unaesthetically shaped dental arch

There are different methods and types of braces to correct an open bite. This dental misalignment can be corrected either with fixed braces, which may be complex, or it can be partially treated with Aligners. The most suitable option always depends on the individual situation and on the patient’s expectations.

Compared to fixed braces, Aligners offer several advantages:

  • Faster results depending on expectations
  • Removable at any time
  • Hardly visible
  • Fair price
