what are the orthodontic appliances used to correct an overbite?

Many: Bionators, frankels, mara's, headgear, pendulum, pendex, tad anchored appliances, forsus springs, twin blocks... The list goes on and on. Headgears in my opinion are passe', functional appliances work, but in a different way than most people think. The best treatment is one that understands facial growth, its limits and whether or not conventional orthodontics or surgery will be used.
