Functional Braces

These braces are used to treat patients with front teeth that stick out. There are numerous different types but at the Orthodontic Centre the one most commonly used is the Twin Block brace.

This consists of upper and lower removable braces that push the lower jaw forward.

Twin Blocks are generally used for growing children and do require good levels of cooperation from the patient. If worn correctly they can produce excellent results in 6 to 9 months.

Usually fixed appliances are necessary after treatment with Twin Blocks to produce the best finished results and smile.
