Functional Appliances Noosa

Functional Appliances harness the action of the jaw muscles and make use of natural growth to correct bite problems in growing patients.

There are several different designs of functional appliances, depending on the age of the child and problem being addressed.

A removable (Twin Block) and a fixed (Herbst) appliance are examples of functional appliances that can be used to correct protrusive upper front teeth and improve the position of the lower jaw.

These types of appliances are usually followed up with braces and may reduce the amount of time braces are needed for.
