Would you like to know about a natural way to straighten teeth (without braces)?
Myobrace® System is a no-braces approach to straightening teeth and jaws.
Daily use of Myobrace® combined with regular facial activities (breathing, tongue clicks, etc) results in straight teeth, improved function and leads to better facial development and a healthier smile.
The main culprits causing this are poor oral habits, such as mouth breathing and incorrect swallowing, combined with the forces of the tongue, cheeks and lips. In order to prevent more serious problems developing in later years these bad habits can and should be treated as early as possible. Early intervention also achieves results that are not possible once the face and jaws have stopped growing. Allergies and open mouth posture also contribute to incorrect jaw development.
Myobrace® system corrects the oral habits and also provides light forces to align teeth into their natural position.
1. When is it worn?
It is worn for an hour during the day and throughout the night. A series of my functional exercises will be given to the child by the dentist to be done during the treatment. Child’s cooperation is a must for success of treatment.
2. Who will it work for?
It is designed to work most effectively for patients from three to fifteen years of age, and is most effective in early childhood while the child is still developing. The optimal patient age group is four to ten years of age.

At around 5.5 years when permanent teeth start growing, you can get an evaluation done by a Myobrace® certified dentist.
