Miscellaneous notes and evidence F depends on DR4/L3. For Twin Block wear, according to latest randomized controlled trial, part-time wear is as effective as full-time wear (Parkeh, 2019) AJODO. But there was more girls in the FT group, as girls are more compliant than boys, this causes attrition bias. And underpowering of the study where the acquired sample size was 56 patient (28 per group) and there was a loss to follow up 6 patients in FT group and 1 patient in PT group. Incremental VS single advancement, there is no difference (Banks, 2004) Ajo. Incremental can be more comfortable for the patient.
