If you or your child are looking for a treatment for Orthodontic problems that focuses on treating the underlying cause of the problems. then you might want to consider Myobrace in Calgary.
Rather than rectifying the effect of crooked teeth as the vast majority of brace systems do, Myobrace Therapy works by naturally addressing many of the issues that cause misaligned teeth in the first place. These include bad habits such as mouth breathing and tongue thrusting.
How Can Myobrace Help?
Our dentists help teach patient how to breathe through their nose instead of the mouth, retraining the tongue to rest in the correct position, swallow the right way and keep the lips together when they aren’t speaking or eating. By focusing on correcting these oral habits that are causing crooked teeth and poor jaw growth, the child will have the best possible chance to grow their jaws to their proper and full size which allows the teeth to come in straight and often eliminates the need for braces later on.
Sometimes Additional arch development may be needed in order to widen the upper jaw to allow for sufficient space for the teeth and tongue. Children with underdeveloped jaws over 7 years of age can be recommended to use appliances and techniques in combination with The Myobrace®System.
At the stage when the last of the permanent teeth are erupting, the Myobrace®for Teens is used to align the teeth into their natural position. If your child’s teeth need additional straightening we provide options such as braces and invisalign!
Myobrace® treatment aims to ensure good oral habits are maintained, often preventing the need to wear a permanent retainer for an extended amount of time. Myobrace® treatment allows for more stable orthodontic results and improved overall health.
The Science behind Myobrace
It’s been proven that in cases where children or adults breath through their mouth, or where a person’s tongue constantly slips past the teeth, the result can be crooked or misaligned teeth. Myobraces work to directly combat these problems. Designed to be worn overnight and for around two hours a day, a tongue-tag trains the tongue to rest properly behind the teeth, while a lip-bumper aligns the lips in the correct position.
The idea behind it is that if the mouth is properly closed and the tongue is positioned in the right area, then any cheek muscle pulling which is prominent throughout growth, is counteracted by a similar muscle push. It’s this counteraction that causes the teeth to grow straight.

Who is Myobrace actually for?
While it can be effective in adults, it works best on younger children between the ages of 6 and 10. Using Myobrace helps children breath and swallow properly and can even cure other issues such as thumb sucking.
