Myobrace is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that offers a natural and brace-free solution for correcting misaligned teeth and jaws. Unlike traditional methods that rely on metal brackets and wires, Myobrace focuses on addressing the underlying poor oral habits responsible for crooked teeth, resulting in a beautiful and fully functional smile. By utilizing a series of oral appliances, Myobrace corrects these bad habits and applies gentle pressure forces to gradually shift teeth into their proper positions.

The treatment involves wearing Myobrace appliances for just one to two hours during the day and overnight while sleeping. Alongside these appliances, specific exercises are prescribed to improve breathing, enhance muscle function and promote proper tongue posture. This combination is highly effective in aligning teeth, encouraging optimal facial development, and fostering a healthier overall smile.

One of the remarkable advantages of Myobrace treatment is its ability to improve posture, reduce allergies and alleviate issues related to the teeth, mouth and jaw joints (TMJ disorders). These benefits contribute to the overall well-being and quality of life for patients undergoing the treatment.

It is ideal to commence Myobrace treatment between the ages of 6 and 10, as this is a crucial growth period when it is easier to influence correct facial development and tooth movement. However, patients over the age of 15 can also benefit from Myobrace treatment, although the correction of habits and issues associated with crooked teeth becomes more challenging, and the patient receiving Myobrace may still need to receive a more traditional orthodontic solution as well.

The duration and cost of Myobrace treatment are comparable to traditional orthodontic methods. Treatment length varies among patients, with some progressing more rapidly while others may require a longer duration.
