Functional appliances

Functional appliances use the principle of growth guidance. They use the natural growth potential of the patient to effect change.

These appliances are most often used before fixed appliances to reduce the discrepancy between the upper and lower jaws and which in turn improves the appearance of the teeth. JJ Thompson make a number of fixed and removable functional appliances, each with its own unique set of benefits. We can modify the appliances to suit your individual preferences – just get in touch to discuss your requirements.
