Control the tongue thrusting habit
During Normal Swallowing pattern tongue should rest below behind the upper teeth on the palate

Hello, I know it's difficult to have tongue thrust problem coz you will be having a lot of speech pronounciation problem.. coming to the treatment.. open bites can be two types skeletal and dental.. skeletal open bites have to be surgically treated where as dental openbites can be orthodontically treated using braces.. We will start you with the treatment with habit breaking appliances along with braces treatment.. Pls note dental openbites close up easily but have a tendency of mild relapse..

First of all I need consultation regarding how much spacing is there and severity of open bite. Average duration of treatment is 2 years. Exact time of treatment, severity and type of braces will together decides the cost of treatment.
