Myobrace

The no braces approach to straightening teeth and jaws

Often touted as “straight teeth without braces”, the Myobrace system is delivering great results for our young patients.

Myofunctional habits & crooked teeth

You may not have heard the term ‘poor myofunctional habits’ before but chances are your kid has at least one of them. Mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, reverse swallowing, and thumb sucking…… they’re all poor myofunctional habits and they can all cause crowded teeth and incorrect jaw development.


Poor myofunctional habits are apparent before all permanent teeth are present, which means treatment of the causes can often begin as early as three years of age.


The advantage with myofunctional techniques is that they are used while a kid’s jaw is still growing, making it easier to fix their problems. In some cases, the use of myofunctional orthodontics can prevent the need for braces down the track. For children with severe oral problems, myofunctional orthodontics are used to make later orthodontic treatment like braces or clear aligners (Invisalign) an easier process.

Correcting the causes of crooked teeth with Myobrace

Myofunctional orthodontics is a pre-orthodontic method that focuses on addressing the underlying causes, and not just the look, of crooked teeth. At KIDS we may recommend Myobrace devices for your kid to treat poor oral habits that are often the underlying causes of crooked teeth.


The Myobrace is designed to deal with incorrect myofunctional habits by teaching children to breathe through their nose, rest the tongue in the roof of the mouth, and swallow correctly, while the jaw is widened.

 

The Myobrace System consists of a series of intra-oral appliances that are worn for one hour each day plus overnight while sleeping. The appliances assist in correcting poor oral habits while exerting light pressure to align the teeth and jaws.

 

In addition to wearing the Myobrace appliances, your kids complete a range of activities twice daily, which consist of a series of breathing, tongue, swallowing, lip and cheek exercises.

Think your kid might need an assessment?

If you are noticing early crowding of your kid’s teeth, arrange a complimentary Myobrace consultation.

 

In the meantime, check out our handy brochure that gives you an overview of Myobrace.

The Myobrace Treatment Stages


Myobrace treatment starts with habit correction, using a series of customised appliances designed to correct the causes of orthodontic problems at an older age and align the teeth as they grow into the mouth. Treatment can begin as soon as poor myofunctional habits are recognised, sometimes as young as 3 years old. For older children who have had more time for the incorrect habits and wrong growth patterns to establish, more time is typically required for a successful treatment outcome.

 

When it comes to getting on the road to a lifetime of good health for your kid, it's easy with our simple Myobrace approach. 

 

Step A – Discuss your kid’s needs

At the first consultation, we will provide you with an overview of how the Myobrace treatment might work for your kid. This is the time when we prepare your kid’s clinical records and take impressions, photographs and x-rays if required.

 

Step B – Discuss your kid’s personalised treatment plan

At the second consultation we will discuss the treatment plan that has been prepared specifically for your kid. We will discuss with you the treatment time frame, the Myobrace appliances required, along with treatment costs and our very convenient payment plan options.

 

Step C – Receive the Myobrace Appliance

Your kid's third visit with us is where we start his or her journey for a healthy start to life. At this consultation, they will be fitted with their first Myobrace appliance. And he or she will also start the educational program. This is where the fun really begins! Each kid receives a customised Myobrace App, which has a range of exercises to help keep them on track during their treatment. The app can be downloaded from:

Apple App Store
Google Play
 

Step D – Regular appointments

Wearing the Myobrace appliance each day and overnight will give your kid the best results. They will get a series of exercises to do and we will check on their progress at each regular follow-up appointment. We will also check the progress of their movement with the Myobrace appliance.

We want to give your kid the best start to a healthy life! We are here with you for every step of the way to make sure you have the confidence and knowledge to make informed decisions about your kid's health.

As part of your child's treatment, you will be required to download your Myobrace App. This help keeps your child on track with a range of exercises that we will be undertaken during the treatment.   You will get a Customised Myobrace App.
