What Causes Crooked Teeth?
Contrary to popular belief crooked teeth are not primarily caused by genetics, but instead by poor oral habits such as: incorrect tongue position, reverse swallow, tongue thrust and thumb sucking.
Allergies, asthma, and mouth breathing may also contribute to the incorrect development of the jaws.
Did you know your tongue is one of the strongest muscles in your body and can exert up to 500 grams of force! To put that into perspective it takes about 1.7grams of force to move a tooth.
What is Myobrace?
Myobrace is a pre-orthodontic treatment designed to correct the underlying issues that cause crooked teeth, eliminating the need for lifelong retention. Myobrace can also often eliminate the need for braces and extractions unlocking your child’s natural growth and development.
Myobrace is a 3-stage appliance system worn 1-2 hours daily and all night. Along with the appliances a series of exercises are given to your child by our trained Myobrace staff. The exercises are practiced daily to help strengthen their tongue, lips and cheeks as well as establish nasal breathing.
How Does it work?
Myobrace appliances effectively train the tongue to position correctly in the upper jaw, retrains oral musculature and exerts light forces to help align the teeth.
Myobrace activities help your child obtain correct nasal breathing as well as strengthen their tongue, lips, and cheeks.
What Myobrace treatment achieves:
- Corrects poor oral habits
- Develops and aligns jaws
- Straightens teeth
- Optimizes facial development
- Improves overall health
- Promotes healthy eating habits
