Twin Block Appliance
« on: 07. November 2017, 01:21:53 AM »
 I just got fitted with a twin block style appliance for sleep apnea!
 This particular appliance has occlusal coverage with acrylic...but lower mandible advancement comes from an expander screw embedded in the lower “block” that helps to push my jaw forward to open the airway instead of used to widen the arch. I am very excited & will post more as it develops

I was not able to continue as my dental insurance came up short...the appliance was over 2000.00
I was molded and on my way with it
I’m very disappointed

Great Day!
I just took the molds and paid for an upper and lower occlusal guard with HERBST connecting the 2
This is for lower mandible advancement. It’s a dream appliance I’ve been waiting for.
It’s 1800 in total for the appliance. Should have it in 2 weeks
I will post pictures!!!!
