Aim. Current trends in pediatric orthodontics aim to identify incorrect development of occlusion andmedium/lower facial third as early as possible. Functional appliances are a popular type of device usedfor treating malocclusion in patients who are growing. Among the functional orthodontic devicesintended for this purpose, “Education Functional” is highlighted. It was developed by Dr. Daniel Rollet. Infact, in the occlusal alterations, early preventive treatment with elastodontic devices resulted in avoidingdysfunctional forces from acting on the skeletal pattern, thus reaching a balance between bone basisand muscular components. This report describes a clinical case of a patient (9-year-old female) withanterior open bite associated to oral dysfunction, treated, in the mixed dentition, with EF-line appliance.Our purpose is to evaluate the effectiveness of this device for the correction of the dysmorphoses.
