Ascot Vale Smiles is proud to be able to provide Myobrace treatment for their patients.
The Myobrace System is combination of a functional appliance and soft tissue training to help straighten your teeth and jaws without using braces.
Removable Myobrace appliances are worn overnight and for 1-2 hours per day to improve tongue posture, promote nasal breathing and promote good oral muscular habits. This natural method will improve the direction of facial growth and will lead to a healthier and straighter smile.
Some of the myofunctional causes of crooked teeth are:
- Poor tongue position and tongue thrusting
- Improper swallowing
- Mouth breathing
- Thumb or digit sucking
The ideal age range for Myobrace treatment is from 6 to 13 years old. This is when the children can retrain any poor habits and redirect their facial growth to the ideal. Treatment outside of this age group is still possible but growth changes may be more limited.
