New Treatment introduced at Lakeside
We always strive to improve the service we deliver. For that reason we have just introduced AdvanSync.
When the top teeth stick out ahead of the lowers it is most often due to a small lower jaw. Ideally we want to encourage the lower jaw to grow forward (rather than the more traditional approach of extracting two upper teeth and moving the top front teeth back to meet the small lower jaw).
More recently removable twin block braces have been used to help move the lower jaw forward and it took at least 9 months before the other train track braces could be fitted.
See what we did with a twin block and no extractions for Jess here.
Now we can fit train track braces at the same time as AdvanSync – saving 9 months and also eliminating the age old problem of braces just not being worn.
Thanks to Callum for volunteering to be the guinea pig and be the first one to try them out!
