What is Myobrace?

Myobrace treatment is simple and effective. It does not involve wearing braces or using complex and uncomfortable dental appliances 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Wearing a Myobrace appliance for one to two hours each day and while sleeping, combined with a few simple yet effective exercises each day is all it takes for a real change to occur, and to avoid needing braces in most cases.

Braces are still the most effective way of straightening teeth, however they do not address many of the problems causing the crooked teeth. Most orthodontic problems, particularly crowded teeth and an underdeveloped lower jaw, are caused by habits such as mouth breathing and tongue thrusting. If these habits are not corrected, treatment time and the necessity for retainers will be increased. Once the braces are removed the teeth can crowd up again (known as relapse). Relapse can occur even with the best retainers. It is important to be better informed about the advantages and disadvantages of braces.

You should seek professional advice from your Orthodontist or Dentist to determine whether the Myobrace is the right choice for you.

How Does Myobrace Work?

The Myobrace System is a no-braces approach to straightening your teeth and jaws.

Treatment uses myofunctional orthodontic techniques to address the poor oral habits (known as myofunctional habits) that are the real, underlying causes of crooked teeth and uses light, intermittent forces to align the teeth. Myofunctional orthodontic techniques have been practiced by Orthodontists and Dentists around the world for over 50 years.

This is done through the use of a series of removable dental appliances that are worn for just 1-2 hours each day and overnight while sleeping.

Daily use of the Myobrace combined with regular activities (to improve breathing, muscle function and tongue posture) results in straighter teeth and improved function, leading to optimal facial development and a healthier smile.

What are the Health Benefits of Myobrace?

One of the most important aspects of Myobrace treatment is correcting bad oral habits, and getting patients to breathe through their nose. As well as improving the alignment of the teeth, breathing through your nose can also lead to improved overall health. Breathing through your mouth does not offer any form of filter for the air entering your throat and lungs; and potentially allows germs and bacteria to enter. Breathing through your nose allows the nose to act as a natural filter for the throat and lungs, filtering out some of the daily germs and bacteria that you are exposed to. This can help to lessen the occurrence of asthma and allergies.
