Myobrace treatment uses flexible, removable oral appliances that are worn during the night, and for a couple hours during the day. In addition, myofunctional exercises are prescribed to help retrain the muscles of the mouth and face.
Myofunctional therapy, which is a key component of myobrace treatment, is a set of exercises designed to improve the function and coordination of the muscles of the tongue, lips, and jaw. These exercises help to correct issues such as tongue thrusting, mouth breathing, and improper swallowing patterns, which can all contribute to misaligned teeth and other dental problems.
The benefits of myobrace and myofunctional therapy include improved facial development, reduced need for orthodontic treatment, better breathing and sleep quality, and improved overall health. Myobrace treatment is also non-invasive, meaning it doesn’t involve the use of traditional braces, that can be uncomfortable or unsightly.
Myobrace treatment is suitable for children as young as three years old and is especially effective when started early, before orthodontic problems become severe. It is also a great option for adults who want to correct their oral habits and improve their oral health without the need for more invasive orthodontic treatments.
