Dr. Arnold Malerman answered
52 years experience Orthodontics
See a Specialist: Twin block appliances are moderately successful for treating growing children, and they DO NOT work for adults. a 12mm overjet is significant. You need to be evaluated by an Orthodontic Specialist, who only does Orthodontic treatment, with specific training in resolving malocclusions such as yours. Assembly=line "orthodontics" can damage faces. See a Specialist.
