How does myobrace work
Myobrace is an evolution of functional appliances that includes myofunctional therapy. It allows early treatment with these appliances that addresses the causes of malocclusion while the child is still growing. It is based on myofunctional therapy exercises, but systemized and modernized so compliance and reproducibility are achieved.
Children wear their myobrace 1-2 hours during the day and while sleeping at night. Goals while wearing the myobrace are tongue on the tag, lips together and breathing through your nose.
Each month a new activity will be given to the child to master. These activities are to be done everyday for 2-5 minutes using an activities app. The activities focus on breathing exercises, tongue and correct swallowing training. All to achieve optimal development.
During treatment kids are to wear their myobrace 1-2 hours during the day (can be broken up) and while sleeping at night. Each month a new activity will be given to the child to master. These activities are to be done everyday for 2-5 minutes. We make them fun and are available on an app!
The myobrace treatment program is customized for each child’s needs and age. Treatment is divided into 3 phases. Oral habit elimination, expansion and alignment/retention.
