A twin block brace consists of a pair of functional braces that work together to correct an exaggerated bite. Your top teeth should rest 2-4mm in front of your bottom teeth. Some cases, children can have an overjet, which means their front jaw is far in front of their bottom teeth. We use twin block braces to reduce the overjet.
As the braces will be a big change, it may take a while to adjust. Talking and eating will be difficult at first but will improve in time. We recommend reading out loud to help train your mouth and tongue with speaking.
Keeping the brace clean is important. We will show you how to keep the appliance clean. You will have to remove it in order to clean it with a toothbrush.
