Myobrace focuses on treating the causes of crooked teeth and poor jaw development.

The American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) recommends that all children receive an orthodontic screening by age 7. Permanent teeth generally begin to come in at age 6 or 7. It is at this point that orthodontic problems become apparent. Seven is the ideal age to evaluate a child to determine if orthodontic treatment is required now or the the future. Interceptive orthodontics are needed to correct problems related to jaw development, and sometimes it is needed as a direct result of oral habits such as a pacifier, thumb sucking, and tongue thrusting.

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. Treatment is best suited to children aged 3 to 15 and involves using a series of removable oral appliances that are worn for 1-2 hours each day plus overnight while sleeping. Myobrace helps to correct poor oral habits, align jaws, and straightens teeth. These appliances will help your child breath through their nose, and train the tongue to be in the correct position.

Myobrace® is designed to deal with these incorrect oral habits by teaching children to breathe through their nose, rest the tongue correctly in the roof of the mouth, swallow correctly. This results in sufficient room for the teeth, allowing them to come in naturally straight and often without the need for braces. The Myobrace®System consists of a series of oral appliances that are worn for one hour each day plus overnight while sleeping. The appliances assist in correcting poor oral habits and expand the jaws to help align the teeth and jaws.

Myobrace® pre-orthodontic treatment assists your child’s teeth and jaws to grow naturally, to accommodate for all their adult teeth.  Braces or Invisalign are sometimes used at the end of treatment for a short period to perfect the alignment of teeth if desired.
