Charlotte’s orthodontic journey

Charlotte’s orthodontic journey

21st June 2022

Our patient, Charlotte, aged 11, has kindly agreed to share her experience of having Twin Block braces fitted. Over the next few months we will be bringing you updates, all written by Charlotte.

‘My main problem is my top teeth stick out which is called an overjet. At my first appointment the
orthodontist took some measurements of how far forward my top teeth sit over my bottom teeth.
He also took some photographs and an x-ray. This was not painful at all.

I was advised that I need Twin Block braces to move my lower jaw forward and improve my bite. I
will then need fixed braces to straighten my teeth. There is not a lot of information available about
Twin Block braces, so I thought it would be helpful to share my journey.

Next week I am going to have another x-ray and scan of my teeth. They will use the information
from the scan to make my braces.’
