An optimal treatment of deepbite requires a careful diagnosis, a proper treatment plan and efficient appliance design. Excessive overbite may restrict growth of the mandible and mandibular dentoalveolar region. It may cause temporomandibular joint disorders and increased masticatory muscle activities. Hence, treatment of deepbite in growing patients is critical. Deepbite can be corrected with intrusion of incisors , extrusion of posterior teeth, flaring of anterior teeth, and/or surgery. In patients with short anterior facial height, extrusion of posterior teeth may be the proper treatment choice to reduce overbite. Fixed anterior biteplane appliance has been used in correction of deepbite in several studies. But these investigations only focused on clinical and cephalometric changes. Therefore, the aim of this case report is to present effects of fixed anterior biteplane appliance on stomatognathic system of a patient with deepbite. A 9.7 year old male patient had decreased lower facial height, uprighted maxillary central incisors and increased overbite. Lateral cephalometric radiographs, electrovibratographic, electromyographic and electrognatographic recordings were obtained from the subject before (T0) and after fixed anterior biteplane treatment (T1). After 6 months of treatment, overbite was reduced, lower anterior facial height was increa-
Derin örtülü kapanışın optimal tedavisi; dikkatli tanı, uygun tedavi planı ve etkili aparey dizaynını gerektirmektedir. Aşırı örtülü kapanış mandibulanın ve mandibular dentoalveolar bölgenin gelişimini sınırlayabilmektedir. Temporomandibular eklem rahatsızlıklarına ve artmış çiğneme kası aktivitesine de yol açabilmektedir. Bu nedenle büyüyen hastalarda derin örtülü kapanışın tedavisi önemlidir. Derin örtülü kapanış keserlerin intrüzyonu, posterior dişlerin ekstrüzyonu, anterior dişlerin labiyale hareketi ve/veya cerrahi ile tedavi edilmektedir. Kısa anterior yüz yüksekliği olan bireylerde posterior dişlerin ekstrüze edilmesi örtülü kapanışın azaltılması için uygun tedavi seçeneğidir. Sabit anterior biteplane apareyi çeşitli çalışmalarda derin örtülü kapanışın tedavisinde kullanılmıştır. Fakat bu araştırmalar sadece klinik ve sefalometrik değişiklikler üzerine odaklanmıştır. Bundan dolayı, bu olgu raporunun amacı sabit anterior biteplane tedavisinin derin örtülü kapanışlı bir hastanın stomatognatik sistemi üzerine etkilerini sunmaktır. 9,7 yaşında erkek hastada azalmış alt yüz yüksekliği, dikleşmiş üst santral kesici dişler ve artmış örtülü kapanış mevcuttu. Bireyden sabit anterior biteplane tedavisi öncesi (T0) ve sonrası (T1) lateral sefalometrik radyografi, elektrovibratografik, elektromiyografik ve elektrognatografik kayıtlar alındı. 6 aylık tedaviden sonra örtülü
