“Crooked or crowded teeth is much more than just a cosmetic issue. It is also a sign of an underlying functional problem. I am passionate on this subject and I strive to provide my patients much more than just straight teeth. Too often, the underlying causes of crooked teeth or incorrectly developing jaws are forgotten or ignored. I have come to realise that this can lead to unstable results, poor facial profiles, unhealthy jaw joints and compromised airway and sleep.”
As a certified Myobrace provider, our main focus at Tweed District Dental is early childhood orthodontics and dentofacial orthopaedics using the Myobrace System.
Dr. Jae is supported by his Myobrace educators (from right to left, Diana, Nicole and Ally) and a fully registered, university trained Oral Health Therapist, Mrs Pia Nevins (pictured far left).
The Myobrace treatment doesn’t just involve wearing a series of appliances. In fact, the most important part of the Myobrace treatment is patient education. Our Myobrace educators are highly trained in this field to guide our patients overcome their incorrect oral habits in a supportive and child-friendly environment.
Dr. Jae also holds a position with Myofunctional Research Company as a senior dentist for their Myobrace Centres across QLD and NSW. He also lectures to dentists and orthodontists across the world about myofunctional orthodontics using the Myobrace System.
“Timing is key. If you intervene early enough, you can achieve so much more for our young paediatric patients. I recommend seeking a professional evaluation from as young as 5 years of age.”
