Myobrace in St. Albert
Myobrace has become a popular treatment method to correct growth and orthodontic issues. Although genetics play a role in facial growth and development, it is not as substantial as previously believed. In fact, poor oral habits including mouth breathing and improper swallowing are underlying causes of misaligned teeth.
FOR AGES 5 – 15
Permanent (adult) teeth erupt between the ages of 6 to 10. During this stage, teeth crowding and jaw misalignment can occur. At the ages of 9 to 12, children are still waiting for the remainder of their adult teeth to erupt. As the adult face develops, crowded teeth and poor jaw alignment can worsen.
What Causes Crooked Teeth?
The primary causes of poor jaw development and teeth alignment include habits like mouth breathing, incorrect lip, and tongue function. These issues continue through to the permanent detention, usually requiring complex orthodontic treatment. Such habits can easily be corrected through Myobrace as opposed to braces or Invisalign. Correcting the causes of oral issues allows natural growth and dental alignment to occur.
How Does Myobrace Work?
Myobrace in St. Albert consists of a series of removable Myobrace appliances which are worn for a minimum of 1 hour throughout the day and night. Myobrace serves to correct the patient’s oral habits in regard to tongue and lip posture and swallowing patterns. Myobrace treatment can result in straighter teeth and a healthier smile as well as improved function and facial development. Myobrace is best directed to children and teens, however, treatment can be beneficial for adults also.
Will this work for me or for my child?
Successful treatment with Myobrace will require daily commitment and persistence. Additionally, results will depend on each individual patient’s biology, which means results may appear quickly or take more time.
