This 11 year old boy had concerns with his upper front teeth which were protruding forwards. Also the overbite was quite severe and deep. He was treated in two stages, the first stage was to correct the bite using a functional Twin Block brace. This was worn full-time for 9 months which corrected the bite and no extractions were needed. The second phase involved fixed braces for 12 months to straighten the teeth. He is now wearing retainers to maintain the teeth in their new perfect positions. By fitting the functional Twin Block brace at the right growth period, we were able to correct the severe bite without the need for any extractions. He loves his new smile and able to bite into anything now the teeth are meeting correctly.
