An Open bite occurs when your front teeth, do not make contact with each other, giving the illusion that your mouth is never really closed. Thumb sucking and tongue thrusting are habits that can affect the development of open bite, as can speech problems such as lisping and genetic misalignment of the upper and lower jaw.
Open bite is not a common problem, and if you are seeking treatment most likely you do so for appearance. However, if you have a moderate to extreme open bite treatment is needed because the condition can affect the joints of the jaw and cause recurring pain.
