Functional Appliances

An appliance for young patients with under / over developed mandibles or narrow maxillas; designed to develop both arches

 

We manufacture many types of functional appliances. These include but are not limited to:

 

Twinblock

Bionator

Frankel II/III

Andressen

Medium Opening Activator

Dynamax

 

By far the most popular of these is the Twinblock. It has the benefit of  being capable of passivity in regards to tooth movement, or else active with springs, so as to move teeth during jaw alignment.

 

What is it for? Correcting Class II or III malocclusions by encouraging alignment of the mandible into a Class 1 occlusion.

 

What does it look like? Blocks of acrylic that place the jaws into the class I occlusion.
