At age 17, I spontaneously developed an anterior open bite. I do not have a habit of tongue thrust. Although, I had been using a drugstore night guard when it developed. My orthodontist fixed it without doing any imaging. Looking back, I wonder if it had been caused by idiopathic condylar resorption or some other degeneration of the joint. If I get imaging done now, will they be able to confirm whether I previously had degeneration or resorption?
