Myobrace - Orthodontics Without Braces
The Myobrace System treats a wide variety of orthodontic concerns, with a range of solutions available. This treatment is designed to work most effectively for patients from five to fifteen years of age, and is most effective in early childhood while teeth are still developing.
Myobrace for Kids™ targets the underlying causes of crooked teeth as soon as the problems are evident, while the child is in the optimal developmental stage. Improving poor myofunctional habits at an early age allows children to achieve proper dental alignment and improved jaw development.
Pre-orthodontic treatment for a wider range of growing children
How Myobrace Works
myofunctional orthodontic techniques address detrimental oral habits that can cause malocclusion, or crooked teeth. Using light, intermittent forces to align the teeth, Myofunctional orthodontic techniques have been practiced by Orthodontists and Dentists around the world for over 50 years.
Myobrace treatment is done through the use of a series of removable dental appliances worn for just one to two hours each day and overnight while sleeping.
Daily use of the Myobrace combined with regular physical therapy activities to improve breathing, muscle function and tongue posture can results in straighter teeth and improved oral function. The goal is optimal facial development and a healthier smile.
Myobrace for Kids
Every three out of four children have crowded teeth and jaws that develop poorly. These problems can become evident as early as 4 years of age.
The optimal treatment age for introducing the Myobrace System is from 6 to 10 years of age, when the child is still growing and developing. This treatment works best when combined with Myolay , a composite buildup technique to assist with proper arch development and jaw alignment. Modern research has shown that mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, reverse swallowing and thumb sucking are significant factors of incorrect jaw development, crowded teeth and other orthodontic problems.
Dentists or orthodontists do not usually recommend any treatment before the age of 13and advise patients and parents to wait until all permanent teeth are present, and then treat with braces and extractions. However, many times braces and extractions do not address the real causes of crooked teeth, and patients will experience relapse after treatment is over.
Myobrace for Kids™ is designed to target the underlying causes of crooked teeth in the early stages of development and as soon as the problems are evident. Myobrace for Kids is a three-stage system of appliances created to correct poor oral habits and treat jaw development problems.. The system teaches children to breathe through their nose, swallow correctly, and rest the tongue in the roof of their mouth. The appliances only need to be worn one hour per day and at night. The results provide sufficient room for teeth to come in naturally and straight, eliminating the need for braces and improving facial development.
