Myobrace: Eliminating the Need for Braces in Most Cases

Myobrace: Eliminating the Need for Braces in Most Cases

Jul 01, 2018

Many people assume their children will need braces because crooked teeth are genetic and cannot be prevented, but that’s not the case with Myobrace.

Myobrace is a preventive treatment that works to correct the causes of crooked teeth in order to prevent the need for braces.

Myobrace treatment is designed for children between the ages of 3 and 15. Adult versions are available as well, but the treatment is most effective in childhood because it unlocks the body’s natural growth and development response.

The treatment involves a series of oral appliances that are worn overnight and an additional one to two hours during the day.

What does Myobrace do?

Myobrace treatment is a comprehensive approach that:

  • Corrects poor oral habits
  • Straightens teeth
  • Develops and aligns jaw
  • Optimizes facial development
  • Promotes healthy eating habits, and
  • Improves overall health.

How does Myobrace work?

Most people assume it is best to wait to begin treatment until a child has all their permanent teeth. However, waiting until a child has all their permanent teeth is not always the best course of action. Many children develop poor oral habits long before their permanent teeth are present.

Myobrace helps prevent damage and poor oral habits by helping children:

  • Breathe through their noses
  • Keep their lips together
  • Correct their tongue resting position, and
  • Swallow correctly.

Correcting these oral habits creates enough space for teeth to come in straight naturally and eliminates the need for braces.

What other benefits does Myobrace offer?

In addition to improving teeth alignment and facial development, Myobrace can improve children’s overall health by addressing airway dysfunctions. Breathing disorders, such as sleep apnea, in children can cause:

  • Snoring
  • Mouth breathing
  • Restlessness sleep
  • Stopping and starting breathing
  • Teeth grinding
  • Mood changes
  • Poor concentration
  • Headaches
  • Frequent infections and other illness
  • Sleeping in odd positions
  • Night terrors, and
  • Bed wetting.

Myobrace helps children develop proper alignment, structure and habits to support better breathing.
