The maxilla is forward in relationship to the mandible.  Patients generally seem asymmetric, as it is usually related to an unnatural development of the chin.

The mandible is forward in relationship to the maxilla.  This tends to cause numerous dysfunctions and health problems, but, it is especially relevant in the patient´s social life, as it causes an unaesthetic appearance that generally affects self-esteem.

This is one of the most common causes of bruxism and bracket placement,  and it is actually quite common to hear the specialist mention whether the child has an open bite or not from an early age. If the open bite was not treated at a young age, it can still be treated by combining orthognathic and orthodontic treatment.

An asymmetric smile should be treated with maxillofacial surgery combined with orthodontics to correct the maxillary deviation.

It is characteristic in patients that display an excessive amount of gums when they smile.  It is mainly a cosmetic treatment.
