When is a trainer necessary?
Wrong way of swallowing (tongue between teeth i.p.v. against the palate) and hypotonia of the lips creates an open bite. It swishes can also be a cause of an open bite. It often results tartar at the lower teeth.
What does a trainer do?
Trainers are orthodontic appliances to improve dentale- and facial development of children between 5 and 15 years. This treatment leads to a better facial development in children. The success of this treatment is the correction of the position and function of the tongue, to obtain the correct way of breathing through the nose and the training of the mouth muscles (cheeks and lips) in order to function properly so that the teeth in the correct position come to be.
The Myobrace® stimulates the proper way of swallowing and breathing. The use of a trainer is an effective method to restore a normal bite. The need for orthodontic treatment can therefore eliminated or greatly be reduced.
How it works
Crooked teeth or incorrect jaw position usually caused by abnormal oral habits such as mouth breathing or incorrect tongue position, incorrect swallowing habit and not a good lip closure at rest.
With the Myobrace trainer to train we will correct these deviations by the mouth muscles and to adjust the position of the tongue. In addition to be done guided breathing exercises to gradually learn the proper breathing pattern. The Myobrace can be used at different ages in order to correct abnormal mouth habits. Every age has its specific characteristics.
Myobrace is for:
The smallest (4 to 6 years)

Teens (10 to 15 years)
How we unlearn the habits mouth
We begin with the training of nasal breathing. It is important that a patient always breathe through their nose. This has a lot health benefits and ensures that we can then tackle the tongue position.
If nasal breathing is a habit we go through exercises to teach proper tongue position in the patient. A correct tongue position ensures that the tongue pier to help to widen the jaw.
Finally, we do swallow exercises. The wrong way of swallowing affects the state of teeth. In principle, a person his / her own teeth crooked swallow.
