Functional Appliances
Functional Appliances
Dentofacial Orthopaedic Appliances
We often use the following appliances:
Removable appliance: a plate to widen jaw, dental arch and/or to correct any teeth in cross bite.  Treatment ofter take 2-3 months.
Functional Appliance or Twin Blocks: an upper and lower plate specially made to re position the lower jaw forward, to correct the jaw relationship, improve facial profile and eliminate big over bite.  
The effectiveness of a functional appliance depends on:
how often the appliance is worn
how quickly the patient is growing
Functional appliances align the jaws not the teeth, so they are usually used as a first stage of treatment (in a growing patient with a significant jaw disharmony) prior to the alignment of the teeth with fixed appliances (braces).

We are providing Functional Appliances treatments for patients from Kempsey and surrounding areas including South West Rocks, Port Macquarie, Wauchope and Macksville…
