If your child suffers from crowding and crooked teeth, we have the no-brace solution for you. Myobrace was developed by Myofunctional Research Co. (MRC) in 1989. The Myobrace appliances are designed not only to straighten teeth, but also to treat the underlying causes of crooked teeth by correcting poor oral habits such as mouth breathing, tongue thrusting and incorrect swallowing patterns.
Unlike traditional orthodontics, the primary goal of MRC’s approach to treatment is to achieve straight teeth for life, often without the need for braces or retainers. Treating the causes of crooked teeth also improves general health and allows children to reach their maximum genetic potential.
Aside from straightening children’s teeth, for adults who suffer from Sleep Disorder Breathing, Sleep Apnoea, or TMJ disorders, the Myofunctional Sleep Appliances (myOSA) can correct the myofunctional habits that are contributing to these health problems. The myOSA is comprised of a series of intra-oral appliances specifically designed to assist in the diagnosis and symptom relief of TMJ disorders and aims to correct the upper airway and neuromuscular dysfunction which can cause Sleep Disorder Breathing.
Moreover, if you clench or grind your teeth at night while sleeping, you may be suffering from Bruxism that can cause tooth wear, enamel damage, tooth sensitivity, jaw aches and tension headaches. MRC has an appliance called BRUXOGARD, a protective barrier between the teeth, reducing muscle tension and preventing tooth damage.
