Recent studies have revealed that poor jaw development and crooked teeth are not caused by genetic factors and can be easily corrected. Myobrace is an effective approach to correct malocclusion without traditional braces. It is a preventative orthodontic treatment aimed at addressing the underlying causes of misaligned teeth and unlocking natural growth. Chapel Gate Dental has a team of orthodontists who will take you through every step of the treatment process and provide amazing results. It can also be used to relieve headaches, snoring, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction.
Myobrace system is intended for correcting myofunctional habits of children and teenagers by teaching them to breathe through their nose, swallow properly, rest the tongue in the upper jaws and continue broadening the jaws to facilitate its proper growth. This will result in adequate space for the teeth, allowing them to grow straight without braces.
Myobrace system includes a series of intra-oral appliances that should be worn overnight while sleeping. These appliances are designed to expand the arch-form of the mouth by applying light forces on the jaws and teeth. Based on the type of orthodontic problems, invisalign and child’s age, we also recommend separate appliances to correct the myofunctional problems. Our dentists also educate the patients on swallowing, breathing, tongue, cheek and lip exercises that should be performed every day for better results.
Myobrace treatment begins with correcting oral habits and identifying the underlying causes of orthodontic problems. Typically, four stages of treatment are involved with Myobrace that ensure a successful outcome.
This stage involves teaching the patient the right way to breathe, swallow and retrain the tongue and lips. Correcting the myofunctional habits will help your jaws developing to their proper shape and size.
Following the habit correction, myobrace appliances are used to widen the upper jaw to provide enough room for the tongue and teeth.
Depending on the individual requirements and conformity of the child, braces are used for a shorter period along with myobrace to provide optimal results.
In order to achieve the long-lasting results, we recommend having regular check-ups with our orthodontist. It is also important to follow the steps outlined in your treatment plan.
