Jens Johannes Bock, Martin-Luther Universität, Universitäts- Und Landesbibliothek Sachsen-Anhalt
In this study 134 cephalograms of orthodontic untreated patients with an anterior open bite were evaluated. To assess the cephalometric measurements a modified Bergen-Analyse (HASUND) were used. In comparsion to other studies of untreated patients the typical craniofacial pattern of patients with an anterior open bite were demonstrated. With help of the inclinations of upper and lower jaws the open bite could be classified in four characteristic groups. The use of additional landmarks gave the
