CREATING FACIAL BEAUTY WITH TWIN BLOCK
Dr Rob Pasch DDS MSc General Practitioner can consult regarding the twin blocks effect on skeletal growth and facial beauty. The appliance is most effective during pre pubertal growth period. When worn as directed the correction usually takes between 6 to 9 months after which retainers are worn to maintain the result until the patient is ready for further treatment when all permanent teeth have come into the mouth.
The twin block treatment appliance is an orthodontic and orthopedic device that works on correcting the skeletal development. It is a removable/fixed appliance that is worn until the jaw corrects. This device is made of two plates, each of which is clipped to the upper and lower arches, so that when the acrylic blocks meet during eating, the jaws undergo corrective growth forces.
