What is Myobrace?
Contrary to popular belief, crooked teeth are not hereditary. The problem doesn’t even lie in the teeth themselves, even though we have become accustomed to treating them with traditional braces or Invisalign. Research now shows that crooked teeth are actually the result of the way the jaw develops early in childhood.
Most parents have experienced the hassle of trying to get their child to sit still at the dentist, either because their child hates to sit still or because they fear the pain they associate with dental procedures. It’s no wonder parents have been scouring the Internet to find ways to minimize the number of dental appointments their child needs in the future.
Thankfully, there is now a solution! We can provide Myobrace in Uptown Charlotte near Plaza Midwood to treat dental and orthodontic problems before they even have a chance to affect your child’s dental health.
Myobrace–also known as pre-orthodontic treatment–is a revolutionary tool that dentists can give to children between the ages of 3 and 15 years old. It’s designed to combat teeth crookedness before it has a chance to develop.
You may be wondering: how can Myobrace make teeth straight before they’ve even had a chance to fully emerge?
Let’s take a look at how it works:
There are a number of orthodontic issues that we can prevent with Myobrace, which will save you time and money in the long run. These issues include:
Because the Myobrace is a pre-orthodontic device that keeps the tongue in the right position, it encourages the jaw to widen so it grows large enough for the teeth to grow in straight. It also helps children swallow correctly and keeps their lips together while they sleep to prevent mouth breathing at night.
Myobrace comes with four appliances that provide four different stages of treatment:
During this stage, treatment will focus on training the tongue and the lips to remain in the right position for optimal breathing and swallowing.
After correcting the lips and tongue, the device used during this treatment will work on widening the jaw. Children who are above the age of 7 can start this stage after getting through the habit correction stage.
At this point, the teeth will have already erupted. The device used during this stage will work similar to braces in that they will guide the teeth into the correct position over time.
This final stage helps ensure that your child’s teeth will stay straight. It will also make it less likely for the teeth to develop future orthodontic problems.
No matter what condition your child’s teeth are in, we can set them on the right path to a beautiful smile with our dental services in Uptown Charlotte, NC near Plaza Midwood. If you think your child can benefit from Myobrace and myofunctional therapy, contact us today to schedule an appointment!
I enjoyed my visit to Genesis Dental very much. The attendant who clean my teeth was very nd friendly and thorough. I really enjoyed how well they took care of my teeth compared to previous visits at other dentist.
Highly recommend. Just a wonderful place to walk into everyone has a smile as soon as you walk thru the door. The coffee and cookies are the best. Always show up early to relax in the massage chairs.
