Myobrace for KIDS – Straighten Teeth, The Natural Way

Myobrace is an orthodontic treatment approach to correct disharmonious oral muscle function and thereby prevent or correct developing mal alignments of teeth and jaws in young children.

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.

Abnormal muscular pressures can influence teeth position and dental arch stability. Studies indicate that the position of the teeth is determined by the pressure from the lips, tongue and childhood habits.

Modern research has shown that a number of poor childhood habits (incorrect myofunctional habits) can cause incorrect jaw development, crowded teeth and other orthodontic problems.

 

These habits of children include:

  • Thumb or finger sucking.

  • Sucking on a pacifier/ feeding bottle

  • Sucking on the lip

  • Mouth breathing (often caused by enlarged adenoids and tonsils)

  • Fingernail biting

  • Thrusting the tongue against teeth

If these habits are not corrected at an early age, it leads to deformative growth of the jaws and severe mal alignment of teeth. ​

Myobrace treatment addresses these incorrect ​myofunctional habits in children. Improving these poor myofunctional habits at an early age allows for your child to have good dental alignment and improved jaw growth. The key is to target the underlying causes of crooked teeth as soon as the problems become evident at an early age and while the child’s biological adaptability is at their peak.

Based on over 20 years of research and currently used by patients in over 100 countries, early or interceptive orthodontics with myobrace reduces and often avoids the need for future treatment with dental braces by laying the foundation for correct ​jaw bone growth and creating the necessary amount of space for teeth early on.
