Introduction to Myobrace

Updated: Jun 18, 2023



I have seen many patients come through our doors seeking orthodontic treatment. While traditional braces have been the go-to solution for teeth straightening for many years, a new technology has emerged that is changing the game. Myobrace is a revolutionary way to straighten teeth naturally, and it's quickly gaining popularity among patients and dental professionals alike.


What is Myobrace and How Does it Work?


Myobrace is an orthodontic treatment that focuses on correcting the underlying causes of crooked teeth, rather than just straightening them out. The Myobrace system consists of a series of removable appliances that are worn for a few hours each day and overnight while sleeping. These appliances work to correct poor oral habits, such as mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, and incorrect swallowing patterns. These habits can cause the teeth and jaw to develop incorrectly, leading to crowded or crooked teeth.

By correcting these habits, Myobrace helps the teeth and jaw develop naturally, resulting in straighter teeth and a healthier mouth.


The Myobrace Appliance - How it Differs from Traditional Braces


One of the biggest differences between Myobrace and traditional braces is the way they work. Traditional braces apply force to the teeth to move them into the desired position. While this can be effective, it doesn't address the underlying causes of crooked teeth. Myobrace, on the other hand, focuses on correcting those underlying causes, resulting in a more natural and sustainable solution.

Another difference is the way the appliances are worn. Traditional braces are fixed to the teeth and cannot be removed until the treatment is complete. Myobrace appliances, on the other hand, are removable and worn for a few hours each day and overnight while sleeping. This makes them more comfortable and convenient for the patient.


The Benefits of Myobrace Treatment


There are many benefits to Myobrace treatment. One of the biggest is that it provides a natural, non-invasive solution to straightening teeth. There are no wires or brackets involved, and the treatment is designed to be easier and more gentle to go through.

Another benefit is that Myobrace can help correct other oral health issues, such as breathing problems and sleep apnea. By correcting poor oral habits, Myobrace can improve overall oral health which improves body posture and brings more balance into the system.

Myobrace treatment also prevents the relapse once the treatment is finished due to the training activities performed throughout the treatment. Tongue, lips and cheeks will work appropriately keeping the teeth in place.


Myobrace vs. Other Orthodontic Treatments


While Myobrace is a relatively new technology, it has already been compared to other orthodontic treatments. One of the biggest differences between Myobrace and traditional braces is the way they work. Myobrace focuses on correcting poor oral habits, while traditional braces apply force to the teeth to move them into position without looking at the root cause.

Another comparison is between Myobrace and clear aligners, such as Invisalign. While clear aligners are removable and can be more comfortable than traditional braces, they still focus on moving the teeth into position, rather than correcting the underlying causes of crooked teeth.


Who is a Candidate for Myobrace Treatment?


Myobrace treatment is suitable for a wide range of patients, from children to adults. It is particularly effective for children, as it can help correct poor oral habits before they become ingrained. However, it can also be effective for adults who are looking for a natural and non-invasive solution to straightening their teeth.

During an initial consultation, your dental professional will assess your oral health and determine if Myobrace is the right treatment for you.


The Myobrace Treatment Process


The Myobrace treatment process typically involves several stages. The first stage is the assessment stage, where your dental professional will evaluate your oral health and determine if Myobrace is the right treatment for you.

The second stage is the habit correction stage such as mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, and incorrect swallowing patterns.

The third stage is the arch development stage continuing with habit correction and reinforcing good oral function. Myobrace appliances work to gently expand the arch of your mouth, creating more space for your teeth to develop naturally.

The final stage is the retention stage, where you will wear a retainer to maintain the results of the treatment.


Frequently Asked Questions About Myobrace

Q: How long does Myobrace treatment take? A: Myobrace treatment typically takes 18-24 months.
