Myobrace®: The Alternative to Orthodontics

What is Myobrace®?

Myobrace® is an alternative to traditional orthodontics that is specially designed to prevent crooked teeth and a misaligned jaw before it starts, by improving, muscle function, breathing, and tongue posture without braces. The ideal candidates for Myobrace® are children between five and 15 years of age and is most effective during early childhood development.

What Causes Crooked Teeth?

  • Thumb Sucking
  • Mouth Breathing
  • Improper Swallowing
  • Tongue Thrusting

Myobrace® assists in the proper formation of the upper and lower jaws by providing two key elements to this pre-orthodontic solution. The first element is through a series of uniquely designed oral appliances that are convenient, removable, and only worn one to two hours a day and throughout the night. The appliances are designed to correct bad oral habits that cause poor dental development while also providing gentle forces that steadily move teeth into their natural position. The second part of the Myobrace® method is a series of ‘myofunctional exercises’, that when combined with the appliance, accelerates the occurrence of dental improvements.

Why Choose Myobrace®?

Myobrace® provides an orthodontic alternative that is designed to prevent the need for future orthodontics by addressing the underlying issues causing the teeth to be crooked in the first place. Benefits of Myobrace® include:

  • Corrects the causes of crooked teeth
  • Corrects bad oral habits
  • Improves muscle function
  • No more mouth breathing- decreases occurrence of asthma and allergies
  • Corrects malformation of the jaw

Unlike traditional orthodontics, Myobrace®

  • Is convenient and removable
  • Discreet- only worn 1-2 hours a day and during bedtime
  • Makes it easy to maintain good oral hygiene habits
  • Causes little-to-no root or enamel damage to teeth
  • Does not require lifelong retainers
