Twin Blocks are the removable version of the orthopaedic fixed Herbst Appliance. One of the most common problems orthodontists treat is the discrepancy that occurs when the upper teeth protrude beyond the lower. Ordinarily, when we see a patient with the upper teeth protruding, we tend to think that the upper jaw and teeth are too far forward; but more often than not, this condition is due to a small lower jaw that is further back than it should be. With these patients, we encourage the lower jaw’s growth to catch up using Twin Blocks.
