SKELETAL FEATURES OF ANTERIOR OPEN BITE
A CROSS SECTIONAL STUDY
The objective of this study was to find out the skeletal features of Anterior Open Bite (AOB) by cephalometric analysis. This cross sectional study was conducted at Department of Orthodontics, de,Montmorency College of Dentistry, Lahore in which records of fifty untreated AOB patient with age range of 15 to 25 (23 Males, 27 Females) were included and patients were considered as having skeletal AOB when SN-MP angle was ? 32.5 degree. The results showed significantly increased values of linear and angular measurements. It was concluded that open bite malocclusion is largely due to the changes in the skeletal pattern.
