You don't often think of candy caution with this time of year. Please remember when you are looking at all the wonderful cookies with nuts, candy canes and other hard/sticky items to be careful. Breaking brackets, retainers or causing arch wires to shift can prolong treatment times and cause other opportunities for problems within your treatment. Have a wonderful holiday season from your friends at Sondhi-Biggs-Hansen Orthodontics.

There are several different types of "Growth Appliances" that can be used in young children. The Twin Block has separate upper and lower bite block components that work together as one. These two appliances interlock together to set the bite at an angle which postures the lower jaw forward into the ideal bite position. This enhances the growth of the lower jaw. For further information about the different types of growth appliances please feel free to contact a Sondhi-Biggs-Hansen Orthodontics team member.
