Myobrace® and Myofunctional Training
Research shows that crooked teeth and poor facial development are not caused by hereditary factors.
Myobrace® System is a preventive pre-orthodontic treatment that focuses on addressing the underlying causes of crooked teeth, often without the need for braces, allowing for natural growth and development.
Myobrace® can be used to prevent or reduce the severity of crooked teeth, and prevent relapse after traditional orthodontic treatment. It can be used independently, pre-orthodontically or in conjunction with orthodontics.
Used by dentists and orthodontists in over 100 countries, Myobrace® has successfully treated millions of people worldwide.
Treatment involves using a series of removable intra-oral appliances that are worn for 1-2 hours each day plus overnight during sleep. The appliances assist in correcting the patient’s poor oral habits and expand the arch-form while exerting light forces to align the teeth and jaws.
The program also integrates myofunctional training or Myobrace® Activities, which further corrects the myofunctional habits causing the incorrect dental and jaw development. These activities are to be performed twice daily in conjunction with wearing the Myobrace® appliance.
Activities consist of a series of breathing, tongue, swallowing, lip and cheek exercises to correct aberrant muscle function related to these constant motions.
Today, tooth decay is on the rise due to high levels of added sugar in processed foods. The Myobrace® System incorporates a nutritional video series aimed to educate children and parents on the need for a good diet in order to prevent tooth decay, improve jaw development and how it is part of growing straight teeth naturally.
