Twin Block Appliance

By on 9-25-2013 in Appliance

The treatment of growing patients presents an opportunity for the general practitioners to alter or modify the velocity and direction of forces produced by either biologic or mechanical sources, that can amend skeletal disharmony. The Twin Block Appliance is one of the functional appliances that can be employed to benefit Class II malocclusion patients by helping them achieve favorable skeletal and soft tissue changes.

The fabrication of a Twin Block Appliance starts from bite registration with Pro-jet to the wire bending of clasps and acrylic build-up of occlusal blocks.
