Straight Teeth The Natural Way®
The Myobrace®System is 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 intraoral appliances that are worn for one to two hours each day plus overnight while sleeping.
How It Works
Waiting until all permanent teeth have come through to begin treatment with braces can unfortunately lead to irreversible damage, affecting not only the teeth, but also the child’s overall health and development.
Poor myofunctional habits (poor oral habits) are evident before all permanent teeth are present, which means treatment of the causes can begin much earlier than originally thought. This can be as early as three years of age.
"What Myobrace® does is look at those underlying causes and tries to deal with them."
Myobrace® is designed to deal with these 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.
For children who have difficulty breathing through their nose, treatment specific to breathing problems may be required. Because poor oral habits contribute to a range of breathing and TMJ (jaw joint) disorders, The Myosa®System is able to evaluate, diagnose and relieve symptoms, as well as treat the underlying causes, allowing for more natural function and improved orthodontic outcomes. The Myosa®System includes sleep appliances suitable for a wide spectrum of patients from as young as two-years-old through to adults, as well as specialty appliances for jaw joint (TMJ) disorder and teeth grinding.
