Malocclusion is a condition reflecting an expression of normal biologic variability. The greater the deviation from the accepted ideal or normal occlusion as classified by Angle, the more severe the expression of the malocclusion. Open bite is a malocclusion that occurs in the vertical plane, characterized by lack of vertical overlap between the maxillary and the mandibular dentition. Diagnosis and treatment of open bite malocclusion is very challenging .
