A case of anterior open bite with facial asymmetry is presented. The un-expected anterior open bite and retrusive mandible occurred shortly following orthognathic surgery (LeFort I - 3 pieces + Bilateral sagittal split osteotomy + genioplasty). The anterior open bite was then successfully corrected with miniscrew orthodontics.Possible causes of post-surgical anterior open bite and the treatment options were discussed comprehensively.
