Myobrace

  • Corrects and stimulates
  • Treats functional anomalies
  • For children from the age of 4 years

When?

In cases of poor swallowing habits (tongue between the teeth instead of against the palate), hypotonia (reduced muscle tone) of the lips and other functional anomalies.

What does the Myobrace do?

Myobrace Trainers are orthodontic aids which improve the dental and facial development of children between the ages of 5 and 15. The Trainer corrects the position and function of the tongue, teaches the patient how to breathe correctly through the nose and trains the muscles of the mouth (cheeks and lips). This enables the teeth to fall into their correct position.

The Myobrace stimulates correct breathing and swallowing practices. The use of the Trainer is an effective way to correct faulty dental practices. It can thus radically reduce the need for orthodontic treatment in the future.

More about this type of bracket

We use the Myobrace Trainer in combination with a training course which takes place once per month with the patient in the practice. The patient must also practice the exercises daily. We have a specially-developed Myobrace Trainer app for this. Short videos mean the patient can use the app to re-watch the instruction in a more playful way and answer questions on the use of the Myobrace Trainer via a quiz. SmileDesigner can log in to the app to check the patient’s progress from a distance. The app is available in all languages.

Crooked teeth or an incorrect positioning of the jaw are usually caused by atypical oral habits such as breathing through the mouth or an incorrect tongue position, incorrect swallowing and a faulty position of the lips at rest. We approach the treatment as follows:

1. We begin by training nasal breathing. It is important that the patient always breathes through the nose. This has many health advantages and enables us to next deal with the position of the tongue.

2. Once nasal breathing has been learned and become a habit, we move on to exercises to teach the patient the correct position of the tongue. A correct tongue position ensures that the tongue muscle can help broaden the upper jaw.

3. Lastly, we move on to swallowing exercises. Incorrect swallowing affects the position of the teeth. Incorrect swallowing can cause crooked teeth.

4. The Myobrace Trainer is also used to strengthen the lip muscles. A special exercise plan is drawn up to train the lips using the Myobrace Trainer.

For whom?

The Myobrace can be used at any age to correct faulty oral habits. Each age group has its own specific characteristics.

  • The very youngest (4 to 6 years)
  • Children (6 to 10 years)
  • Teenagers (10 to 15 years)
  • Adults
