What is Myobrace?
Myobrace is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment designed to correct improper jaw and dental development in children. It is a series of removable dental appliances, known as myofunctional trainers, that aim to address the underlying causes of crooked teeth and misaligned jaws. These trainers are worn for a few hours each day and overnight while sleeping, encouraging proper oral habits and muscle function.
With Myobrace, children can avoid the need for traditional braces or extractions, as it focuses on guiding the growth and development of the jaws, improving facial balance, and enhancing overall oral health. The treatment is non-invasive and provides a natural approach to orthodontics.
Why would Myobrace be needed?
Myobrace is typically recommended when a child exhibits signs of incorrect jaw development or poor oral habits. Early intervention with Myobrace can address these issues and prevent further complications in the future.
The need for Myobrace arises when a child experiences problems such as crowded or crooked teeth, difficulty breathing through the nose, thumb or finger sucking habits, tongue thrusting, or improper swallowing patterns. These issues can result in an imbalanced facial structure, compromised oral health, and potential speech difficulties.
By using Myobrace, these underlying causes can be addressed, promoting natural growth and development of the jaws, straightening teeth, and improving overall oral function.
Who would be a candidate for Myobrace?
Children between the ages of 5 and 15 are generally the best candidates for Myobrace treatment. This is because their jaw and dental structures are still developing and can be guided more effectively.
A child who exhibits signs of incorrect jaw development, crowded or crooked teeth, mouth breathing, thumb or finger sucking habits, or other poor oral habits may be a suitable candidate for Myobrace. It is important to consult with an experienced orthodontist or dentist who specializes in Myobrace to determine if this treatment is appropriate for your child.
What happens during the Myobrace procedure?
The Myobrace procedure involves several stages aimed at correcting the underlying issues contributing to improper jaw and dental development.
- Assessment: The first step is a thorough examination by a Myobrace practitioner. This assessment will involve analyzing the child's facial structure, jaw alignment, dental occlusion, and overall oral health.
- Treatment Planning: Based on the assessment, a personalized treatment plan will be created. The plan will outline the specific Myobrace appliances to be used and the duration of treatment required.
- Myobrace Appliances: The child will be provided with a series of removable myofunctional trainers. These trainers are designed to be worn for a few hours each day and overnight while sleeping. They assist in correcting poor oral habits and improving jaw and muscle function.
- Regular Check-ups: Throughout the treatment, the child will have regular check-ups with the Myobrace practitioner. These appointments allow for adjustments, monitoring progress, and ensuring the appliances are functioning effectively.
- Gradual Progression: Over time, as the child's oral habits improve and their jaw and dental structures align, they will progress to the next stage of Myobrace appliances. Each new trainer builds on the progress made, guiding the natural development of the jaws and teeth.
By following the prescribed treatment plan and using the Myobrace trainers as directed, children can achieve a beautiful, harmonious smile, improved facial balance, and enhanced oral health without the need for invasive orthodontic procedures.
