How it Works
What Is Myobrace?
Myobrace is a removable, preventive orthodontic treatment that is typically used for patients between the ages of 3-15. It looks similar to a mouthguard or a retainer, and it is intended to help correct poor oral habits, ensure proper development and alignment of the jaws, and straighten teeth.
The Myobrace appliance is used to help correct issues that often cause orthodontic issues and encourage healthy habits like breathing through the nose, correct swallowing, proper tongue resting position, and keeping the lips together at rest. Myobrace is meant to be worn for about 1 hour per day, and overnight during sleep.
What to Expect
The Myobrace Treatment Process
The first step of Myobrace treatment is to schedule an orthodontic consultation with Dr. Duncan. During this appointment, he will take pictures, impressions, and x-rays of your child’s mouth to determine if Myobrace is right for their needs.
Myobrace typically has four stages of treatment: First, Dr. Duncan will focus on habit correction to ensure your child does not have unhealthy oral habits that can contribute to orthodontic issues. Next, he will create a Myobrace appliance to help with arch development. Once the arch is properly developed, he will use the Myobrace system to help align and correct the position of teeth. Finally, your child will be provided with a Myobrace retainer system to help keep their teeth in the proper position.
