Open bite, 27 year-old man

A 27 year-old gentelman was worried about his open bite and lip incompetence. Facial and occlusal investigation was performed and anterior open bite was diagnosed accompanied by vertical maxillary excess in the back and small chin. The orthodontic setup was finished after 1,5 years and patient went for surgery.

Double jaw osteotomy and genioplasty was performed. The patient now can benefit from improved facial balance and lip competence, as well as improved chewing function due to correct occlusion.
