Myobrace is a method of treating kids with crowded teeth at a much earlier stage than traditional braces. Rather than working directly on teeth, the myobrace system works on correcting poor muscle and oral habits such as mouth breathing, incorrect tongue posture and excessive muscle movement around the lip and incorrect swallowing patterns. While the primary goal is to give patients straight teeth, it also aims to improve the facial profile, improve the airway and give lifelong results without the need for a retainer after treatment.
The myobrace system typically involves wearing a specially designed trainer for 1 hour a day and overnight for a period of 1-2 years. Simple easy exercises are required to reinforce the correct position of the muscles and patients must come in for regular reviews and adjustments for treatment to be successful. The ideal age for this treatment is 8-12 yo.
