    Notes: The purpose of this study was to compare the mandibular movements of anterior openbite patients using those of normal bite (angle class I) patients, to ascertain which components of mandibular movement are different in the two groups, and to use this information for occlusal treatment. The Saphon Visi-trainer Model 3 and the Denar Pantronic were used to record mandibular movement and a Pantronic survey was performed using an arbitrary hinge axis, according to manufacturer's instructions. The subjects were 43 adults and included 28 subjects presenting with acceptable normal occlusion (angle class I) with no sign of TM dysfunction syndrome (TMD) and 15 subjects with anterior openbite with no anterior guidance. In the anterior openbite group, the average anterior and lateral condylar inclination, maximum opening and the distance between the intercuspal position with retruded contact position distance (anterior–posterior) were significantly lower than normal. The results suggest that in openbite patients the condyle inclination is flatter and the function of the TMJ is more restricted than in the mandibular movements of the normal group. It is hoped that these results will be useful for the correction of the anterior openbite condition.
