ABSTRACT
Anterior openbite is defined as the lack of contacts between the functional occluding teeth on vertical line at centric occlusion and classified into functional and skeletal anterior openbite based on its causes and characteristics. Anterior openbite causes masticatory, speech, and esthetic problems in the growing children and difficulties in diagnosis, treatment, and the prediction of its prognosis. We are reporting on the treatment of anterior openbite in the growing children and the results follow as : 1. In the growing children with anterior openbite, the overbite could be increased by the treatment according to its causes and characteristics. 2. The prognosis is not determined by the presence or severity of oral habit but the skeletal tendency of the patient.
