More than likely your daughter would need some pretty heavy duty Orthodontics and possibly including breaking her jaw and resetting it, which is not a lot of fun. An open bite is one of the most difficult cases to correct. Full braces would be put on and if the bite could not be corrected with just that, then they would have to consider breaking the jaw and resetting it to have better occlusion all the way around and then wire her jaw shut for several weeks. Very extensive and time consuming not to mention the painful. It can be done and your best bet would be to set up a consult with a local Orthodontist. They will take a series of xrays to determine the best course of treatment. Good luck.

Dixee Originally Answered: I lost the combination to my briefcase and can't open it. I don't want to break it. Any ideas on how to open?
That is tough. Briefcases normally have two sets of combination locks. Once you pry them open, even if its just one lock, the locks are busted forever and replacing this type of locks, if they are replaceable, are very expensive. I guess since you mentioned it has been a long time you had access to it, they must be old. I suggest you pry them open to get to its content, then buy a new one.

U can check with your dentist if they can do a filling. I ever heard that if the cap is not wide, they can do a filling to close the gap. The reason why they do the filling is that filling takes only mins to close the gap while braces will take like months or even years.

try veneers, however if the gap is too open, u might need braces.....i was recommended to do that whole jaw breaking thing because of my open bite,,,but i went with veneers....if u do veneers, make sure the dr doesnt give ur daughter long teeth....they think that it close the bite, but esthetically it looks horendous...

This is one of the things an orthodontist can help u with. Depending on severity and etc. sometimes they can use braces, expanders, etc. to fix things OR sometimes surgery is necessary and an oral surgeon will usually do that.

Samson Originally Answered: HELP! Spider Bite? Please help.?
It is very likely that you got bit or stung by something. In the US almost every bite or sting will result in immediate pain and physical signs of the bite or sting if it is serious. It is rare that I go into the woods or mountains and do not get bit by some kind of bug. This is what you wrote: 1) You felt pain 2) You felt dizzy (possibly because you were stressing about it) 3) There is no redness or swelling after an hour or more Since you don't know for certain what it was and you feel ok right now, what is the worst case scenario? This depends on where do you live? According to my Web research if you are in the US there are only two spiders that are considered dangerous and more prevalent in warmer climates: Black Widow and Brown Recluse Symptoms from the black widow are immediate while symptoms from the brown recluse are delayed and sometimes take hours or days to appear. I've read that these spiders usually bite when they are accidently disturbed. For example, you might put on a jacket that you haven't worn in a long time and a brown recluse has taken up residence in the jacket. When you put it on the spider is threatened and bites you. I did not read any scenarios where a spider bites a person in the woods (although I'm sure this is a possibility and has happened to someone). I have had several experiences of getting bit by certain kinds of ants. These sting a bit and then the pain quickly goes away. There is usually no sign of the sting. And then of course there are other insects such as a horsefly, mosquitoes, bees and many others which sting and cause various degrees of pain. These are not dangerous unless you are allergic to these (you would know it if you were). I suggest first doing a quick Google search for "poison spiders " - review the pages and see if any little critters live in your geographic region and the sting or bite matches your symptoms. I've pasted one source below that describes both the black widow and brown recluse. If you are in the US and were bit by spider it is very unlikely that you will have any problems. Brown recluse bites are dangerous and require medical attention but chances are very slim that you were bit by one. Take a look at the site below, do a Google search for your geographic area and keep an eye on the area where you were bit. In the very slim chance that you show signs of a brown recluse bite go to the doctor right away so they can treat you and minimize tissue damage. Most importantly don't stress about this - it is very unlikely that you have been bitten by a spider that poses any health threat. You will probably experience the most pain from worrying about this. I hope this was helpful.
