What Is Myobrace?
Myobrace is a revolutionary, preventive pre-orthodontic treatment. This technology addresses some of the underlying issues that cause crooked teeth and uses light force to align the teeth.
Myobrace embraces the myofunctional orthodontic techniques that have been practiced for years. These techniques address the poor oral habits or myofunctional habits which lead to crooked teeth or misaligned jaws.
The treatment uses removable dental appliances which are worn 1-2 hours per day and while sleeping. Additionally, the patient performs regular activities to improve breathing, tongue posture, and muscle function. The result is straighter, better aligned teeth, optimal facial development, and a healthier smile!
With Myobrace in Cary, the mouth learns to heal itself, often without braces. This allows for natural growth and development.
Candidates for Myobrace Treatment
Myobrace is a pre-orthodontic treatment for children ages 5-15. However, adult treatments are also available. The younger or earlier that Myobrace treatment is started, the better as it can prevent or address more problems.
Patients with the following habits or indications may qualify for Myobrace:
- Thumb sucking
- Difficulty eating foods with certain textures or chewiness
- Mouth breathing
