Myobrace was invented in Australia over two decades ago and is currently gaining popularity. Oral habits contribute to misaligned teeth more than genetics.
Children begin to get their permanent teeth around the ages of six to ten. During this stage, their teeth can crowd, and their jaws may become misaligned. The effects of teeth crowding and poor jaw alignment become more evident as their face develops.
Poor jaw development and tooth alignment are caused by mouth breathing and incorrect tongue and lip function. These problems will continue to affect the development of your teeth. Typically, orthodontic treatment will be required to correct it.
Myobrace works by asking the patient to wear a series of removable Myobrace appliances (similar to shown) for a minimum of 1 hour during the day and overnight while sleeping. The purpose of this treatment is to change the patient’s oral habits concerning tongue and lip posture and swallowing patterns. Daily use of the Myobrace appliance results in straighter teeth and improved function, leading to the improved facial development and a healthier smile. Although Myobrace is best directed to children and teens, adults still receive benefits from the treatment.

The Myobrace system is a bit like a training program. Like study or sport, daily commitment and persistence are required to obtain results the best results. It also depends on the patient’s basic biology for change – therefore sometimes the results are rapid, and at other times it may take more perseverance. Old habits die hard, so the sooner the training program is implemented, the better the growth benefits and the more permanent the result.
