The Scoop on the Myobrace System
Sometimes our bad habits like mouth breathing, thumb sucking, tongue thrusting and reverse swallowing, known as incorrect myofunctional habits to us folks in the dental biz, are the underlying cause of incorrectly developing jaws and teeth. Enter the Myobrace System, which is a nifty, natural way to fix those bad habits and exert light force to align the teeth and jaws into their natural position without braces.
Based on 20 years of experience, the system is made up of appliances, which are designed to be used in a sequence. The best part? No complex equipment and no mouth full of metal. You only need to wear a Myobrace appliance for one or two hours a day and overnight while snoozing. We combine this with myofunctional exercises, known as trainer activities (kind of like a workout for your mouth), for maximum results.
While straight teeth are an awesome benefit, one of the coolest things about Myobrace treatment is that it corrects bad oral habits, which can be the underlying cause of crooked teeth and underdeveloped jaws. One such habit is mouth breathing. It encourages patients to breathe through their nose, which improves the airway helping with asthma and allergies and boosting your overall health.
Myobrace treatment can allow patients to avoid braces altogether or in the small number of cases they’re eventually required, individuals only have to wear them for a short time. Unlike traditional methods of teeth straightening, you won’t experience a relapse where stubborn teeth go back to their old positions and it’s more comfortable. Since the appliances are removable, you can keep up on your brushing and flossing and no one will know you’re undergoing treatment.
