BACKGROUND To evaluate skeletal and dentoalveolar effects of Forsus fatigue resistant devices (FRD) and twin-block (TB) appliance in Class II malocclusion cases. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty young adult patients (age 13-17 years, overjet 6-10 mm) with a Class II division 1 malocclusion were randomly divided into two groups: group I included 10 patients treated with TB, Group II included 10 patients treated with FRD. Dentoskeletal changes were analyzed on lateral cephalograms taken before (T1…

Dento-skeletal changes in patients using twin-block appliance- A pre and post treatment comparison

There is a significant improvement in the total mandibular length and anteroposterior relationship in patients treated with twin-block appliance, according to the results of present study.

Dentoskeletal effects of the forsusTM fatigue resistance device in the treatment of class II malocclusion: A systematic review and meta‐analysis

The ForsusTM showed positive effects on the maxillary incisors and first molars as well as overjet and overbite, however, multiple negative effects were reported on the occlusal plane and lower incisor that need to be considered when using such appliance in treating Class II malocclusion.

Second Class Functional Treatment: Andreasen Activator vs Twin Block

The functional devices studied, Andreasen activator and twin block seem to obtain more skeletal than dental results when the patients were treated at the peak of pubertal growth.

Early treatment of a severe Class II malocclusion with the Forsus fatigue resistant device.

The early phase of treatment of a severe Class II malocclusion with the Forsus fatigue resistant device was found to be effective at reducing the sagittal jaw discrepancy, controlling the patient unfavourable growth pattern, and improving the child aesthetics.

A comparison of the efficacy of fixed versus removable functional appliances in children with Class II malocclusion: A systematic review.

There is little evidence concerning the relative effectiveness of fixed and functional appliances in Class II malocclusion or in relation to patient experiences and perceptions of these treatment modalities.


The main objective of this review article is to create a clear conception on the effects of the Twin-block appliance and also compare its efficacy with other functional appliances.

Evaluation the Treatment Effects of Functional Appliances Used in Class II Malocclusions

ÖZET Ortodonti pratiğinde sıklıkla karşılaşılan Sınıf II maloklüzyonların tedavi planlaması maloklüzyonun şiddetine, yumuşak doku profiline ve kalan büyüme miktarına bağlı olarak değişebilmektedir.



A comparision of Twin-block and Forsus (FRD) functional appliance--a cephalometric study.

Cephalometric analysis revealed that both Twin-block & Forsus Fatigue Resistant Device (FRD) appliances stimulated mandibular growth and both Twin Block and Forsus were effective in the treatment of Class II Div 1 malocclusion.

Effectiveness of comprehensive fixed appliance treatment used with the Forsus Fatigue Resistant Device in Class II patients.

The FRD protocol is effective in correcting Class II malocclusion with a combination of skeletal and dentoalveolar modifications and a significant improvement in maxillo-mandibular sagittal skeletal relationships.

Skeletal and dentoalveolar changes concurrent to use of Twin Block appliance in class II division I cases with a deficient mandible: a cephalometric study.

The present study concluded that Class II correction occurs by both skeletal and dentoalveolarChanges following the use of Twin-Block appliance.
