Here is an illustration of how to correct a backward bite caused by an undeveloped upper jaw using an expanded upper arch and a reverse headgear/facial frame.
Early treatment in the young is crucial because reverse bites worsen with growing and develop more negatively. Early intervention can reduce the need for future surgery or more complicated medical care.
In more complicated cases like this one, it won’t completely remove the need for more treatment in the future.
