This article reported a treatment of an adult male patient, his age was 17 years 3 months, his chief complaint was difficulty in chewing, pronunciation, and esthetics. He was diagnosed of having 6 mm of anterior skeletal open bite on skeletal Class II, overjet 5 mm, negative overbite - 4 mm, and tongue trust habit. The patient was successfully treated using mini-implants anchorage, 022 MBT appliance, and muscles exercises. Our results suggested that using mini-implant anchorage, muscles exercises, and repositioning the brackets as needed delivered good final results in skeletal anterior open bite cases.
