Myobrace Treatment is a form of early treatment for growing children, age 6-12 years old, focusing in guiding growth and development of the jaws.
Modern research shows that poor myofunctional habits such as mouth breathing, incorrect tongue position, reverse swallowing and thumb sucking are playing important roles in children having crooked teeth and poor jaw development. This treatment incorporates a series of appliances and exercises to guide the development of the jaws.
Inherited problems include buck teeth, crowding of teeth, gaps between teeth, cleft palate and a wide range of other irregularities of the jaws and face.
Acquired malocclusion can be the result of thumb or finger sucking, tongue thrusting, dental disease, premature loss of primary or permanent teeth and also damage to the teeth or jaws as a result of an accident.
