Myobrace in Melbourne Correcting Children’s Teeth
Conventional metallic braces are quite uncomfortable and can cause a child a lot of pain and discomfort. However, advancements in modern dentistry now see dentists offering the ‘no-brace’ early intervention method of Myobrace. An industry revolutionising teeth realignment appliance, Myobrace is used for redirection growth and to eliminate potentially damaging soft tissue habits in children as young as 5. Comfortable and non-intrusive this treatment uses myofunctional orthodontic techniques to address poor oral habits – which form the underlying causes of crooked teeth.
How Are Crooked Teeth Treated?
Having made an informed decision on the best dental treatment for your child’s crooked teeth, your dentist will first carry out detailed scans of the jaw and teeth. A computerised projection will be created showing how to best straighten the teeth and improve poor oral habits. Via the Myobrace, light intermittent forces are applied to the crooked teeth, gently aligning them into position.
