The open bite malocclusion is challenging to most orthodontists in part because the etiology is poorly understood. In this review we will explain the multifactorial etiology of this malocclusion. The role of facial growth and function in the development of this malocclusion, and several other factors that often are contributing to this malocclusion. The etiology, diagnosis and some important treatment considerations in patients with open bite will be discussed.
