Introduction: The skeletal anterior open bite may be treated using mini-screws as a complete anchorage is provided for correction of the open bite through the intrusion of the maxillary molars. The case presented herein used mini-screws along with a specially designed acrylic plate.

Case Report: A 13-year-old female patient with a Class 2 div 1 malocclusion, anterior open bite, supra-erupted posterior teeth, and the dual occlusal plane was treated using two mini screws along with an acrylic plate.

Results: The molar intrusion was achieved significantly with a mandibular counterclockwise movement, improving the facial profile and thus reducing the open bite.

Conclusion: The anterior open bite was adequately corrected using mini-screws along with an acrylic plate, without significant side effects.
