Myobrace treatment is simple and effective. It does not involve wearing braces or using complex and uncomfortable dental appliances 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Wearing a Myobrace appliance for one to two hours each day and while sleeping, combined with a few simple yet effective exercises each day is all it takes for a real change to occur, and to avoid needing braces in most cases.
Braces are still the most effective way of straightening teeth, however they do not address many of the problems causing the crooked teeth. Most orthodontic problems, particularly crowded teeth and an underdeveloped lower jaw, are caused by habits such as mouth breathing and tongue thrusting. If these habits are not corrected, treatment time and the necessity for retainers will be increased. Once the braces are removed the teeth can crowd up again (known as relapse). Relapse can occur even with the best retainers. It is important to be better informed about the advantages and disadvantages of braces.
The Myobrace SystemTM is based on over 20 years of experience in correcting orthodontic problems without the need for braces. The Myobrace appliances which make up this system have the proven dual function of correcting the oral habits that cause poor dental development (known as myofunctional habits), while also providing light forces to align the teeth into their natural position. This technique is now used by Orthodontists and Dentists in more than 100 countries throughout the world.
These appliances are designed to be used in-sequence to effectively train the tongue to position correctly in the upper jaw, retrain the oral musculature and exert light forces to align the teeth. Myobrace treatment does not involve wearing braces or using complex and uncomfortable dental appliances 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Wearing a
Myobrace appliance for one to two hours each day and overnight while sleeping, combined with a series of ‘myofunctional exercises’ (also known as the Trainer Activities) each day is all that is required in the treatment process. In a small number of cases, fixed braces may be required for a short time to provide optimal alignment.
