Who is Myobrace suitable for?

This is highly recommended for children aged 3 to 15, a perfect time where they are still growing and where corrections can still be done. Our specialised children’s dentistry at Vacaville Dental Care, is ready to help your child get the smile they deserve.

myobrace for children

3 out of every 4 children have crowded teeth and incorrectly developing jaws. These problems are evident from as early as 4 years of age.

The optimal treatment age using the Myobrace System is from six to ten years of age, when the child is still developing. Treatment works best when combined with arch development and Myolay if necessary.

Modern research has shown that mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, reverse swallowing and thumb sucking (also known as incorrect myofunctional habits) are the real causes of incorrect jaw development, crowded teeth and other orthodontic problems.

Treating and correcting these poor myofunctional habits is highly important as research shows the position of the teeth is determined by the lips and tongue.

Quite often Dentists or Orthodontists do not recommend any treatment before the age of 13; rather advising patients and parents to wait until all permanent teeth are present, and to then treat with braces and extractions. But braces and extractions do not address the real causes of crooked teeth and quite often once they are removed, the teeth crowd up again.

Myobrace for Kids™ corrects the true causes of crooked teeth as soon as the problems are evident, while the child’s biological adaptability is greatest in their younger years. Improving these myofunctional habits at an early age allows for the child to have good dental alignment and improved jaw growth.

myobrace for teenagers

Once the permanent teeth are present in the teenage years, the Myobrace System becomes less effective than if treatment was started during childhood. Treatment with the Myobrace System can still work at this age when combined with arch expansion. The longer you’ve had poor myofunctional habits, the more difficult they are to correct. Old habits die hard, and so the sooner treatment is started the better the results may be. Additional alignment with braces may be required.

The Myobrace for Teens™ is a no-braces alternative to straightening teeth. Treatment involves using a series of removable orthodontic appliances combined with daily exercises to train the oral muscles and produce straighter teeth and a healthier, better looking smile.

The underlying causes of crooked teeth are poor muscle function. Mouth breathing, swallowing incorrectly, and overactive facial muscles can all contribute to an unhealthy jaw and teeth. Once these habits are improved, straightening the teeth becomes a much more simple process.

Myobrace treatment is simple. It does not involve wearing braces or using complex and uncomfortable dental appliances 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Wearing a Myobrace appliance for one to two hours each day and while sleeping, combined with a few simple and effective exercises each day is all it takes to make your teen’s smile as healthy as possible.

myobrace for adults

Many adults would like straighter teeth and an improved smile, but are worried that some of the more traditional orthodontic solutions are not suitable for them, whether for social or professional reasons, or due to personal preference. Many may even have had braces, but their teeth have crowded up again.

Research shows that after about 15 years of age, when all permanent teeth are present and the jaws have stopped growing, the bone around the teeth is harder.

Dental work on older patients’ teeth can make them more prone to damage from orthodontic appliances. In traditional adult orthodontic treatment, all of these factors can contribute to less stable results and likely long term or permanent retainers being required if poor oral habits have not been corrected.

The MYOBRACE for Adults™ works to align the teeth and correct the poor oral habits (also known as myofunctional habits) that are the real causes of crooked teeth and poor jaw growth. This process can straighten teeth without the need for complex retainers or braces.

If you suffer from a clicking jaw, frequent head or neck pain, or grind your teeth, then you may have a Temporormandibular Joint (TMJ) problem. Some We can also offer patients treatment for these problems.
