Abstract

The aim and objective of this study is to report the recurrence of the treatment of the anterior open bite after 5 years of treatment. A female patient aged 8 years 6 months old had a negative vertical crossing of −4.7 mm. Early treatment with a fixed palatal grid was performed for 1 year. At the end of the treatment, the vertical overpass was 1.1 mm and after 2 years of control, the vertical overpass remained positive with 1.7 mm showing the stability of the treatment. After 5 years, and due to the sucking and lingual interposition habit, there was a recurrence of the open bite. Interdisciplinary follow-up is extremely important to eliminate the factors responsible for the origin of deleterious habits, thus solving the changes resulting from these habits and providing long-term stability.
