Removable aligners for both upper and lower teeth

Twin blocks are a special type of removable brace used to treat teeth that stick out a lot. They are generally worn for around 12 months by children or younger teenagers who are still growing. Patients are advised to wear twin blocks full time in order to work successfully and usually require fixed metal braces immediatley after for a further 12 to 18 months.

Upper & Lower Teeth

For people with protuding teeth and more complex bites, twin block braces help to straighten your teeth and improve your bite.

Regular visits to the orthodontist are required to check the treatment is progressing as it should and to make any necesssary adjustments.

Easily Removeable

Twin block braces must be worn everyday day and throughout the night but they can be easily removed before eating or brushing your teeth.

These braces can also be removed when playing contact sports or to enable you to play musical instruments properly.

Louie’s front teeth started 10mm further out than his bottom teeth. We used twinblocks to reduce this distance followed by fixed appliances to give him his new smile!

"Now the brace is off after only 16 months – and I don’t know where the time has gone. For me the result is remarkable. It’s hard to believe how much movement can be achieved. Don’t think about it as long as I did. Make that appointment, you won’t regret it."


"The whole experience was great, the staff were very friendly and my appointments were always quick and on time - so I was able to fit them in around work. I now like showing off my smile and my self confidence has improved. My only regret is that I waited all those years before I plucked up the courage to do it!"


"After just 15 months I am amazed and very pleased with the smile I now have. I no longer hide from the camera and am more than happy to show off my brilliant smile and my self confidence in general is much higher. I only wish I had done it years ago."
