Myobrace is an alternative orthodontic treatment that uses a child’s natural growth patterns to minimize the need for braces in the future.
Why Our Dentist Recommends Myobrace
The difference between the Myobrace system and other orthodontic treatment options is that the goal isn’t to straighten crooked teeth. Instead, using a system of Myobrace appliances, it aims to correct oral habits like mouth breathing and tongue thrusting that may be the underlying cause of crooked teeth and underdeveloped jaws.
Myobrace treatment in Aurora combines appliance therapy with a series of myofunctional exercises that the child performs each day. For children between the ages of 6-10, Dr. Baller would recommend wearing a Myobrace appliance overnight and then for one to two hours each day.
Myobrace provides the dual function of retraining oral musculature and exerting gentle forces on the teeth to align them into their proper position. To provide optimal alignment, fixed braces are required for a short period.
