Introduction

In the authors' previous text, overbite control was discussed in a separate chapter, following the subject of tooth leveling and aligning. However, it has become apparent, especially with the use of heat-activated nickel-titanium (HANT) wires, that overbite control is more closely related to the arch leveling process, and that it generally occurs after the leveling and aligning of individual teeth, l or example, many cases show well-aligned teeth in the early part of treatment, but still have a significant amount of deep overbite, with arches that are not level. This chapter will review deep overbite in non-extraction and extraction cases, and will discuss the general principles involved in the management of anterior open bite.
