In orthodontics, patients with hyperdivergent facial types or problems in the vertical dimension are often challenging to treat with predictable treatment results. Conventionally along with fixed appliances, a headgear, posterior bite block, extraction, temporary anchorage devices, or orthognathic surgery are preferable approaches to treat such patients. This case report illustrates a non-extraction, non-surgical orthodontic treatment of 5 mm anterior open bite in a non-growing adult patient, utilizing clear aligner therapy.
