Myobrace is a new orthodontic product primarily for children but also adults. It straightens teeth naturally, often without the need for braces. Myobrace functions in a preventative way that focuses on the underlying causes of teeth crookedness and other possible habits that can lead to teeth problems.
The Myobrace System involves a series of intra-oral appliances to be worn for one-hour every day and overnight during sleep. In tandem with the appliances are the Myobrace Activites. These have been specially developed to further correct any habits that may cause harmful jaw and dental development.
The Activites (which involve a series of breathing, swallowing, tongue, cheek and lip exercises) are performed twice daily while wearing the Myobrace. The fun element and active participation of the teeth correction make this product ideal for children as young as three-years.
The four stages of the Myobrace system consist of evolving the dental area with four types of trainer, which resemble mouthguards. The stages each have a uniquely fashioned mouthguard-style Myobrace for
- Habit correction – teaches the patient to breathe through the nose, place the tongue correctly, swallow correctly and keep the lips together when not in use
- Arch development – this is required to widen the upper jaw which allows more space for teeth and tongue
- Dental alignment – used to align the teeth in to an optimum position
- Retention – the final stage works to ensure that beneficial oral habits are maintained
The time Myobrace treatments takes vary from patient to patient but ensure a lifetime of good dental health.
