The Myobrace System is a no braces approach to straight teeth and correct jaw development
The Myobrace System™ is based on over 20 years of experience in correcting orthodontic problems without the need for braces and is successfully used by Orthodontists and Dentists in more than 100 countries throughout the world.
The Myobrace appliances have a proven dual function of correcting the oral habits that cause poor dental and facial development (myofunctional habits), whilst also providing light forces to align the teeth into their natural position.
What Myobrace® treatment does
How does it do this? By helping the child:
The use of the appliance keeps the muscles of the tongue, lips and cheek balanced as it guides the jaw to develop naturally allowing for all teeth to erupt as nature intended
Myobrace works best for patients who are still growing, around the ages of five to ten. Effective treatment can be done outside of these ages, but habits become harder to correct in older patients.
The activities app helps your child re-train their tongue and facial muscles to perform functions like breathing, eating & swallowing correctly through a series of simple fun exercises.
Sugar and processed foods negatively affect a child’s overall health. A good fibrous diet is constantly re-inforced to prevent tooth decay and improve optimum jaw development.
This is even more important today where we have tooth decay on the rise due to the high level of added sugar in processed foods and the high level of consumption of empty foods. To get the best results from Myobrace® treatment, it is best to adopt a healthy diet.
