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.
Our dentists help teach patients how to breathe through their nose instead of the mouth. In addition, we focus on retraining the tongue to rest in the correct position, swallow the correct way and how to keep lips together when not speaking or eating. By focusing on correcting these oral habits that lead to causing crooked teeth and poor jaw growth, the patient will have the best chance to grow their jaws to their proper size which will allow teeth to come in straight. Implementing these corrective techniques often eliminates the need for braces later on.
Sometimes additional arch development is needed to widen the upper jaw to allow for enough space for the teeth and tongue. Patients with underdeveloped jaws over the age of 7 can be recommended to use additional appliances and corrective techniques with The Myobrace®System.
Myobrace®for Teens is used to align the teeth into their natural position at the stage that permanent teeth are erupting. If your child’s teeth need additional straightening we provide options such as braces and Invisalign!
Myobrace® treatment aims to ensure oral habits are well maintained, often preventing the additional need to wear a permanent retainer for an extended amount of time. Myobrace® treatment provides stable orthodontic results and overall improved oral health.
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.
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.
