What Is Myobrace® Myofunctional Therapy?
When you choose to use Myobrace, you no longer have to worry over taking your child to the dentist’s office for orthodontic issues that could have been prevented in the first place. Your dentist can help you determine if your child is a good candidate by asking you about their oral habits and checking their teeth during a general dental exam.
Myobrace Teeth Straightening
It’s understandable to feel hesitant about giving your child braces. That’s why Myobrace is designed to be a much easier process for both you and your child. Similar to night guards, Myobrace is a removable orthodontic appliance.
Even better, it only needs to be worn while your child sleeps and then again for at least 1-2 hours during the day.
Myobrace works because it targets the areas of the mouth that need correcting with gentle pressure, which is much more tolerable for children. The pressure helps prevent tongue thrusting, mouth breathing, and thumb sucking by encouraging the mouth and tongue to stay in the right position.
As the mouth develops correctly, the teeth will have room to grow straight without crowding or large gaps.
Myobrace isn’t just for straightening teeth, although that is the main goal of using any orthodontic device. A pre-orthodontic device like Myobrace is also key to preventing airway issues later in life, such as sleep apnea and TMJ jaw related issues.
With Myobrace, myofunctional therapy, your Myobrace educator and dentist’s guidance, your child may never have to deal with:
- Open bites
- Breathing/airway issues
- Teeth crowding
- Gaps in the teeth
- Open mouth posture
- Sleep related issues
