The MYOBRACE® is made with a soft, silicone material with tooth slots to align each tooth. A harder inner core then actively develops the jaw, making more space for crowded teeth. In addition it has a tongue tag, lip bumpers and dual arch to re-train the tongue, lips and breathing pattern, which improves its effectiveness and helps the teeth to move into a permanent natural position with less chance of relapse.
The MYOBRACE® is designed to fill an active role in the orthodontic treatment for children and parents who want to avoid braces and extractions. The treatment works best when started BEFORE the permanent teeth come in between ages 9 and 11 years (late mixed dentition).
With daily use of 2 hours per day and overnight, the MYOBRACE® is a viable alternative to braces for the compliant patient. It can be combined with other appliances like the BENT WIRE SYSTEM and even fixed braces afterwards to obtain final tooth alignment in difficult cases if needed.
