MyoBrace® – Myofunctional Therapy
We can promote natural growth and development with the MyoBrace System.
Myobrace teaches your child to breathe through their nose, rest their tongue on the roof of the mouth, and swallow correctly, significantly reducing and even eliminating the breathing and health problems associated with having an obstructed airway.
The system also widens the jaws to help them grow properly and develop correctly, creating space for the permanent teeth to emerge straight and in the right position from the beginning. Myobrace intervention early very often prevents children from needing braces as teens or adults.
Myobrace Myofunctional Therapy is a preventive, pre-orthodontic treatment for children from 3 to 15 years old that uses a series of removable intraoral appliances that your child wears for 1-2 hours a day and overnight.
