Myobrace

Straight Teeth The Natural Way

The Myobrace®System is preventive pre-orthodontic treatment that focuses on addressing the underlying causes of crooked teeth, often without the need for braces or extraction of teeth, unlocking natural growth and development. Treatment is best suited to children aged 5 to 15 and involves using a series of removable intra-oral appliances that are worn for 1-2 hours each day plus overnight while sleeping.

Treatment can begin as soon as the poor myofunctional habits are recognised. With good compliance, excellent results can be achieved. Waiting until all permanent teeth have come through to begin treatment with braces can unfortunately lead to irreversible damage affecting not only the teeth, but also the child’s overall health and development. Poor myofunctional habits (poor oral habits) are evident before all permanent teeth are present, which means treatment of the causes can begin much earlier than originally thought.

The appliances assist in correcting poor oral habits, developing and aligning the jaws, straightening the teeth, optimising facial development and  improving overall health.

It helps the child to breath through the nose, correct tongue resting position, swallow correctly and keep the lips together.
