The Myobrace System is a preventive pre-orthodontic treatment that focuses on addressing the underlying causes of crooked teeth, often without the need for braces or extraction of teeth, unlocking natural growth and development. Treatment is best suited to children aged 3 to 15 and involves using a series of removable intra-oral appliances that are worn for 1-2 hours each day plus overnight while sleeping.
The Myobrace treatment does:
Corrects poor oral habits
Develops and aligns the jaws
Straightens the teeth
Optimises facial development
Improves overall health
Promotes healthy eating habits
This system work by helping the child:
Breathe through the nose
Correct tongue resting position
Keep the lips together
How It Works
Myobrace is designed to deal with incorrect Myofunctional habits by teaching children to breathe through their nose, rest the tongue correctly in the roof of the mouth, swallow correctly and continue widening the jaws so they grow to their full and proper size. This results in sufficient room for the teeth, allowing them to come in naturally straight and often without the need for braces.
The Myobrace System consists of a series of intra-oral appliances that are worn for one hour each day plus overnight while sleeping. The appliances assist in correcting poor oral habits and expand the arch-form while exerting light forces to align the teeth and jaws.
Separate appliances are used depending on the child’s age and type of orthodontic problem. In addition, the patient education program, known as Myobrace Activities, is used to further correct the Myofunctional habits causing the incorrect dental and jaw development.
The Activities are to be performed twice daily in conjunction with wearing the Myobrace appliance and consist of a series of breathing, tongue, swallowing, lip and cheek exercises.
