Myobrace looks like a mouthguard but can provide results the same as wire or clear braces. It works by retraining the muscles in the mouth to behave normally. It comes to us from a team of researchers in Australia and we are one of the only dentists in OKC to offer it.
So, our kids can develop some bad habits when they are very young. Many factors can contribute to this. Often these habits are developed with the use of a binky (pacifier) or from breathing through the mouth while at rest, rather than the nose.
“Myobrace® is designed to be worn just one hour a day…”
Regardless, the muscles in our face are intended to behave a certain way and when they do not, normal developmental growth cannot occur. This can lead to all sorts of problems. Mouth-breathing is a big one. But more damaging and long-lasting effects can also occur such as a retruded chin and overcrowded (crooked) teeth.
Myobrace® can help retrain the muscles in the face as a child is still growing and their face is still developing. This can provide significant benefits for the child’s appearance and overall health. It can change their lives by helping them develop a symmetrical, attractive face in addition to having a beautiful smile.
Myobrace® is designed to be worn just one hour a day, and the child will progress through three phases of treatment. Exercises will also be performed in the clinic to further train the child to properly breathe, swallow, and speak.
All of this works together in a way that brings so many positive results that we can’t even name them all here. Enter your email below to get more information or call us at (405) 563-7097 to schedule an initial consultation with me.
