Are there any signs or reasons why this treatment would not be suitable?

Some limitations do exist. The Myobrace System requires daily use over an extended period of time, and therefore non-compliant patients will not achieve a satisfactory result.

Age is also a significant factor – the older the patient is, the more difficult it is to change habits and move the teeth. Patients with extremely crooked teeth and jaw discrepancies which stop said patient from physically holding the Myobrace appliance in their mouth can limit treatment possibilities.

Complete nasal obstruction can also make Myobrace treatment difficult. There may be other limiting factors and so it’s best to speak with our Myobrace Doctor if you have any concerns.
