Using Myobrace Treatment to Straighten Teeth Without Braces
Looking for an alternative to bulky, inconvenient and conspicuous braces to align your teeth? With Myobrace, you can straighten your teeth and jaws without braces using custom made retainers that you only need to wear for a few hours a day.
Dentists around the world have used myofunctional orthodontic techniques for over 50 years. In myofunctional orthodontics, the underlying causes of crooked teeth are addressed by treating poor oral habits (called myofunctional habits) with light, intermittent forces that align the teeth.
In this process, a series of removable dental appliances are worn between one and two hours per day and at night while you sleep.
By using the Myobrace along with regular activities (to increase breathing capacity, muscle strength, and tongue posture), teeth will grow straighter and healthier, leading to a better smile and a healthier face.
Who is Myobrace Treatment For?
Whether you are a child or an adult, a Myobrace can help with crowded teeth, overbites or alignment problems resulting in dental problems or breathing problems like sleep apnea.
Our dental specialists at Focus Dental offer the Myobrace solution to correct crooked teeth caused by poor habits developed in childhood (that can result in dental issues later in life) such as mouth breathing, reverse swallowing, and thumb sucking. As part of the Myobrace treatment of crowding, it also addresses issues regarding airway obstruction.
While traditional dentists wait until the child reaches 12 years of age to correct habits and make use of their growth potential, the Myobrace system corrects habits and makes use of growth potential even in early childhood. A child of between five and ten is the ideal age group to start, as they will be able to comprehend and change habits.
By using Myobrace, your dentist at Focus Dental can identify and treat pre-teen, adolescent and adult issues earlier than usual.
