Myobrace - Orthodontics Without Braces In Encino 91436

  At Daniel Tebbi, DMD - Cosmetic Dentistry & Orthodontics


Modern research shows that crooked teeth and poor jaw development are not caused by hereditary factors. Myobrace® focuses on treating the underlying causes, unlocking natural growth and development. Used by dentists and orthodontists in over 100 countries Myobrace® has successfully treated millions of children worldwide.


The Myobrace System is suitable for a wide variety of orthodontic concerns, with a range of solutions available for most patients. It is designed to work most effectively for patients from five to fifteen years of age, and is most effective in early childhood while the child is still developing. The optimal patient age group is six to ten years of age.

Myobrace for Kids™ targets the underlying causes of crooked teeth as soon as the problems are evident, while the child's biological adaptability is at their peak. Improving these poor myofunctional habits at an early age allows for the child to have good dental alignment and improved jaw growth.


How Myobrace works

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.

Myobrace for Kids

3 out of every 4 children have crowded teeth and incorrectly developing jaws. These problems are evident from as early as 4 years of age.

The optimal treatment age using the Myobrace System is from six to ten years of age, when the child is still developing. Treatment works best when combined with arch development and Myolay if necessary.

Modern research has shown that mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, reverse swallowing and thumb sucking (also known as incorrect myofunctional habits) are the real causes of incorrect jaw development, crowded teeth and other orthodontic problems.

Treating and correcting these poor myofunctional habits is highly important as research shows the position of the teeth is determined by the lips and tongue.

Quite often Dentists or Orthodontists do not recommend any treatment before the age of 13; rather advising patients and parents to wait until all permanent teeth are present, and to then treat with braces and extractions. But braces and extractions do not address the real causes of crooked teeth and quite often once they are removed, the teeth crowd up again.

Myobrace for Kids™ targets the underlying causes of crooked teeth as soon as the problems are evident, while the child's biological adaptability is at their peak. Improving these poor myofunctional habits at an early age allows for the child to have good dental alignment and improved jaw growth.

HOW THE K1 WORKS

Myobrace® - K1
The Myobrace for Kids™ is a three-stage appliance system designed specifically to correct poor oral habits while treating upper and lower jaw development problems. The K1 provides habit correction and is made of flexible silicone to adapt to any arch-form and poorly-aligned teeth. Its flexible nature also means that it offers improved retention for night-time use.

MRC has pioneered the use of appliances to correct myofunctional habits in growing children and has proven success in orthodontic correction without braces. This treatment can also lead to better facial development in growing children. The key to this treatment is correcting the position and function of the tongue, obtaining correct nose breathing and retraining the oral muscles to function correctly.

Myobrace® appliances effectively train the tongue to position correctly in the upper jaw, retrain oral musculature and exert light forces to align the teeth.

Patient Selection
The Myobrace for Kids™ is most effective when a child’s permanent teeth are coming through (ages 5 to 10) and is available in three sizes.

Directions for use

 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The K1 must be worn for 1 hour each day and overnight while sleeping and always remember to follow these few simple steps:
• Lips together - at all times except when speaking.
• Breathe through the nose - to assist the development of the upper and lower jaws, and to achieve the correct bite.
• No lip activity when swallowing - which allows the front teeth to develop correctly.

 

Cleaning the Myobrace K1
The K1 should be cleaned under warm running water every time the patient removes it from their mouth. Use Myoclean™ tablets to correctly clean twice a week. Myoclean™ is the recommended cleaning agent for MRC's appliances.

HOW THE K2 WORKS

Myobrace K2
The Myobrace for Kids™ is a three-stage appliance system designed specifically to correct poor oral habits while treating upper and lower jaw development problems. The K2 provides arch development in addition to habit correction. It features Dynamicore™ with a Frankel Cage which assists in developing the arch form and improving the dental alignment. The K2 is available in three sizes and comes in pink, blue and clear.
