Rights and Permissions

A simple and innovative method of merging the free end of transpalatal arch into the acrylic used as bite blocks in fixed twin block appliance is presented. Inadequate retention of any orthodontic appliances could lead to aspiration of the foreign body posing medical emergency. The proposed method helps in additional retention as well as prevents the possibility of accidental ingestion of the fixed twin block appliance.
