Myobraces in Melbourne are a pre-orthodontic system that aims to get to the cause of crooked teeth causes, addressing these in order to prevent the use of braces or teeth extraction. Getting Myobraces in the Melbourne CBD involves retraining the use of the muscles in the mouth, lips and tongue, meaning it’s best used with children aged between 3 and 15 whose mouths are still developing. When engaged in Myobraces treatment, patients will need to wear a mouth appliance that looks a bit like a mouthguard 1 to 2 hours every day, as well as overnight during sleep.
Myobrace is a dental innovation that doesn’t just straighten teeth once they’re already crooked, but works on a preventative level to correct unhelpful myofunctional habits. Myobrace mouth appliances allow children to breathe though their nose, swallow easily, and develop and widen their jaws so that as they grow, there’s enough room in their mouths for all their teeth to appear naturally straight.
Myobraces work on children whose jaws are still developing, which means that rather than trying to force teeth into a new shape, Myobraces develop the jaw to make space for the childs teeth. Myobraces available in our clinic at Melbourne CBD work more gently at an earlier stage. With our Myobrace in Melbourne CBD clinic, we encourage children to wear Myobraces 1 to 2 hours per day and overnight.
