Many orthodontic problems (particularly crowded teeth and an underdeveloped lower jaw) are caused by habits such as mouth breathing and tongue thrusting.
Myobrace can help correct these behaviors, and the appliance only needs be worn for 1-2 hours per day and while sleeping.
What is Myobrace?
Myobrace is an appliance that can help correct certain orthodontic problems without braces.
The Myobrace appliances have a proven dual function:
- Correcting the oral habits that cause poor dental development (known as myofunctional habits)
- Providing light forces to align the teeth into their natural position
Treatment involves wearing an appliance for 1-2 hours daily, overnight while sleeping, combined with a series of myofunctional exercises.
Who is Myobrace for?
Myobrace is available on a case-by-case basis. It is most commonly used for patients ranging from 5-15 years of age. This is because the system works best with patients that are still growing.
