Bite analysis indicating a closed bite.

This patient has a closed bite.  Every time she was asked to close her teeth she felt comfortable stopping at the point shown in the first three photos.  The last photo shows how much more she has to go to completely close her teeth.  Her TMJ should be examined and reversible bite plate therapy instituted before considering an irreversible bite change.
