The Twin Block Tool was invented and patented by RealKFO. This tool simplifies the manufacture of the Twin Block:
• Exact 70 º or 45 º angle
• Parallel angles on the left and right block
• Saves time when spraying and trimming
• Individually adjusted, long lasting, economical, easy-care
General Instructions for TwinBlock Construction
- Polish the lower appliance.
- Place the appliance on the model and use Scheu-Dental "ISOFOLAN" foil to insulate the lower appliance from the upper appliance (this is a much quicker method than tape or wax)
- Spray trim and polish the upper appliance.
- Tip: keep the lower first molar clear of clasps to allow elongation if necessary.
- Tip: watch that the second molars are controlled ! danger of opening the bite.
- Tip: check the buccal edge of the lower block it is often too sharp and needs rounding
- Tip: RealKFO in Germany gives day courses in the laboratory
- Tip: Why not do a RealKFO online seminar @ 150 Euros an hour, to get advice and perfect your Twin Block techniques (Send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to book a time)
