Oral habits can interfere with the growth and normal development of the jaws, favouring the onset of malocclusion and changes in normal swallowing and speech patterns depending on factors such as duration, frequency, intensity and facial pattern. The open bite is most frequently seen in anterior region, having deleterious habits as one of its main etiological factors.
