Myobrace is an orthodontic appliance that addresses poor oral habits that cause crooked teeth and poor jaw alignment in children. Developed by orthodontists, it is considered as a natural preventive care approach to help straighten teeth and development of jaw as early as in childhood. For instance, Myobrace could help to deal with various incorrect myofunctional habits that cause misaligned teeth by guiding your child to breathe correctly through the nose, correcting tongue position and the way of swallowing food as well as to keep the lips together. As a result, the developing teeth can be straightened while the jaws would develop to full size and align properly. Furthermore, by ameliorating poor oral habits, Myobrace may aid in optimising facial development, promoting healthy eating habits as well as improving overall health of the child that is ultimately tracked into adulthood. This is soft, rubbery appliance is best suited for children aged 3 to 15. It works by the patient wearing the removable intra-oral appliance for one to two hours throughout the day and overnight while sleeping. By intercepting early before the permanent teeth come through, Myobrace aids healthy teeth growth and development in children without the need for braces or extraction of teeth in future.
Myobrace K0 helps to establish a functional airway and correct tongue position in mouth breathing children. It is made of a large collapsible breathing hole which initially opens the oral airway while transitioning to nasal breathing. The active tongue tag strengthens the tongue, thus improves breathing function.
K1 focuses on initiating nasal breathing and correct poor myofunctional habits. Being adaptive to any arch form and malocclusion, it has small breathing holes for nasal breathing with myofunctional features to promote correct habits. When nasal breathing has been established, move to using K2 when the K1 is staying in overnight.
Myobrace K2 is mainly for developing arch development and continuing habit correction. Besides continuous nasal breathing and myofunctional features, K2 has a revolutionary Dynamicore™️ inner cage for arch development and to improve myofunctional habits further. When arch form has been formed alongside corrected habits, the child shall move to using K3.
Myobrace K3 is the firmest appliance in the series that aids in final alignment of teeth while retaining the arch form, breathing and myofunctional habits. At this stage, the patients’ teeth will be mostly aligned. Therefore, the K3 can be used to finalise any remaining mild malocclusion.
