Functional braces

Our functional braces are designed to correct an overbite, common in teens and young adults, whose teeth and jaw are still growing. These removable braces are very effective at lessening the prominence of the upper front teeth and can also reduce the need for extractions.

How do they work?

An overbite occurs when your front teeth protrude over your bottom teeth. And the twin block functional braces we use are precisely positioned to gently move your lower jaw forward when you close your mouth. Over time, your jaw will grow forward, permanently correcting an overbite.

To get the best results from functional braces, it is recommended you wear your appliance for approximately 9 to 12 months. However, every case is different so we’ll advise you how long you’ll need to wear it as part of your treatment plan.
