Monica Ndudi ADEKOYA


This article is a case of successful orthodontic management of an anterior open bite in a 32-year-old married woman using a full fixed orthodontic appliance (straight wire technique). Her orthodontic treatment was hinged on correcting the vertical relationship of the posterior segment by the intrusion of the posterior teeth, from the premolars to the first molar of both arches, closing all available spaces, including the midline diastema, which was used to correct overjet and overbite of the patient, restoring both aesthetic and functional properties.
