Orthodontic Growth Modification Treatment

We are a reputed name in Orthodontics Growth Modification Treatment. Growth modification (early treatment) is part of the first phase of two-stage orthodontics treatment of children with malocclusion (poor bite). Growth modification is only possible when bones are still growing. Orthodontics Growth Modification Treatment is most effective during children's growth spurts.

Orthodontists use growth modification devices (appliances) to change the position, shape, length, or width of the jawbone(s). Some common devices for the Growth Modification Treatment are:
  • Headgear, an appliance that uses pressure to guide teeth and jaw growth
  • Herbst, an appliance attached to the upper and lower molars that corrects overbites caused by a small lower jaw
  • Bionator, a removable appliance that guides teeth and jaw growth
  • Palatal expansion, an appliance that corrects crossbite by widening the upper jaw

Twin Block Appliance Treatment

The Twin Block is a removable (ie. you can take it out), functional appliance. It is made up of two components, an upper and lower plate, which works together to posture the lower jaw forward. This frees up the “locked-in” lower jaw and encourages it to grow to its fullest potential.


Orthodontics Appliance Treatment

Orthodontics headgear is a type of Orthodontics Appliance attached to dental braces or a palatal expander that aids in correcting severe bite problems. Headgear is typically used in growing patients to correct overbites by holding back the growth of the upper jaw, allowing the lower jaw to catch up.
