Myobrace

A ?No Braces? solution to address crooked teeth. Smile Place Dental offers this new orthodontic option called Myobrace.

What is Myobrace?

Myobrace?is a no-braces orthodontic approach to help straighten teeth and jaws. Treatment addresses the poor oral habits that are the real cause of crooked teeth.

It was established by parent company Myofunctional Research Co. (MRC) that was founded by Dr Chris Farrell in Sydney in 1989.

What causes crooked teeth?

It is a common belief that crowded teeth, incorrect jaw development and other orthodontic problems are caused by either large teeth in small jaws or other hereditary factors.

Modern research has shown that mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, reverse swallowing and thumb sucking ? known as incorrect myofunctional habits ? are the real causes of incorrect jaw development.

What else can contribute to jaws developing incorrectly?

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Open mouth posture
  • Thumb sucking and dummies can also contribute to the problem

How does Myobrace treatment work?

Myobrace treatment involves using a series of removal and permanent appliances that have the proven dual function of correcting habits that cause poor dental development, while also providing light forces to align the teeth into their natural position.

Wearing a Myobrace appliance for one to two hours each day and overnight while sleeping, combined with a series of trainer exercises each day is all it takes for a real change to occur.

These appliances are designed to be used in-sequence to effectively train the tongue to position correctly in the upper jaw, retrain the oral musculature and exert light forces to align the teeth.

Will it work for me or my child?

The Myobrace System is a bit like a training program. Like study or sport, daily commitment and persistence is required to obtain results the best results.

It also depends on the patient?s inherent biology for change ? therefore sometimes the results are rapid and other times it may take more perseverance.
