In recent years, a growing emphasis has been placed on natural and preventive approaches to orthodontic care. Myobrace is one such innovative solution offered by our team at Virginia Biological Dentistry in Glen Allen, Virginia that has gained attention for its unique approach to addressing orthodontic issues. In this article, we’ll explore what Myobrace is, how it works, and the potential benefits it offers.
Myobrace is a system designed to address orthodontic concerns, particularly in children. Unlike traditional braces, which focus primarily on realigning teeth, Myobrace takes a holistic approach by targeting the underlying causes of orthodontic issues. It aims to correct poor oral habits and promote proper facial and jaw development.
How Myobrace Works
- Muscle Training: Myobrace involves exercises that target the muscles of the mouth and face. These exercises aim to correct tongue posture, breathing patterns, and swallowing habits
- Appliance Usage: Patients use Myobrace appliances, which are custom-designed to encourage proper tongue posture and guide the growth of the jaws. These appliances are removable, making them a more flexible and comfortable option compared to traditional braces
- Daily Habits: Myobrace treatment includes a focus on daily habits. Patients are encouraged to practice proper oral habits, such as nasal breathing and correct tongue posture, to complement the effects of the appliance
Key Benefits of Myobrace
- Preventive Approach: Myobrace aims to address orthodontic issues early, often in children between the ages of 5 and 15. Targeting the root causes may reduce the need for more invasive orthodontic interventions later in life. It is also a great natural alternative to traditional braces
- Promotion of Facial Development: The system is designed to guide the growth of the jaws and promote proper facial development. This not only contributes to a straighter smile but also supports overall facial aesthetics
- Improved Breathing: Myobrace encourages nasal breathing, which has been linked to improved oxygenation and overall health. By addressing improper breathing habits, it may contribute to better respiratory function
- Comfort and Convenience: The removable nature of Myobrace appliances allows for greater comfort and flexibility. Patients can easily maintain their oral hygiene and enjoy a broader range of foods compared to traditional braces
Considerations and Consultation
Before considering Myobrace or any orthodontic treatment, it’s crucial to consult with a qualified orthodontist. A comprehensive examination will help determine the suitability of Myobrace for an individual’s specific needs and provide insights into the expected duration of treatment.
