Tackle Crooked Teeth Early with Myobrace®

What exactly is a Myobrace®?

Myobrace® is a removable trainer for children that utilises design characteristics to correct underlying jaw development and breathing issues. As a result, the teeth should align in their natural position.

Why should I choose Myobrace® for my child and what are the benefits of this treatment?

We advocate the use of the Myobrace® to correct jaw and breathing issues because we take a holistic approach and practice Complete Health Dentistry.

We seek to treat the root cause of any dental issues wherever possible rather than just treating the effects. Myobrace addresses the underlying habits that cause crooked teeth. It retrains your child’s swallowing and breathing habits. Our belief is that these results are optimally achieved before all the permanent teeth are present in the mouth.

Daily use of the trainer combined with regular activities (to improve breathing, muscle function and tongue posture) leads to optimal facial development, which results in straighter teeth and improved function.

What is the best age for the use of the Myobrace® trainer?

Children aged between five and twelve years are ideal candidates for this early intervention system. The treatment is most effective when it is started before the child’s permanent teeth begin to erupt (before six).

It may benefit some older children, but is most effective when the child is younger. The later the intervention, the more likely it is that conventional braces may be needed later for refinement.

What are the goals of Myobrace® treatment plan?

The primary goals of this early intervention treatment are to:

  • Decrease the severity of malocclusion (imperfect positioning of the teeth)
  • Decrease the need for extraction
  • Improve facial growth
  • Correct breathing
  • Improve appearance and posture
  • Improve the stability of any future orthodontic treatment
