Myobrace is another alternative to orthodontic treatment. Myobrace is a new system that not only straightens teeth but also corrects the bad influences on a child’s dental and facial development. Modern research has shown that incorrect myofunctional habits like mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, reverse swallowing and thumb sucking are the underlying causes of incorrect jaw development. Allergies, asthma and an open mouth posture are also other factors and this Myobrace system is focused on correcting those bad habits as well as creating less mouth and jaw (also known as TMJ) problems. This system can also eliminate neck and back pains and sore muscles from bad posture, and possibly orthodontic treatment in the future. We want to prevent crooked teeth before it happens and keep the children healthy. However, successful treatment and rapid results can only be obtained from the child’s daily commitment and persistence to the program. He or she must be willing to make the changes and wear the appliance and practice the exercises prescribed by the doctor. Our staff will put in their best efforts to help the children adapt to their new appliance and follow up on the exercises with them. If you would like to have more information regarding this system fit for your child, we can arrange a consultation appointment with the doctor for you.
