Myobrace in Wheat Ridge

What is Myobrace?… http://www.myobrace.com

We are so excited to implement Myobrace into our office! This resource helps treat:

  • Airway dysfunctions
  • Reverse swallowing
  • TMJ
  • Poor oral habits
  • Develops & aligns the jaws
  • Straightens the teeth
  • Optimizes facial development
  • Improves overall health

Myobrace will be used to help children who mouth breathe, show signs of reverse swallow, or symptoms of TMJ.

Myobrace is also an exciting approach to correct malocclusion, and a way to possibly avoid traditional braces. It is unique in that it can identify and fix oral functional problems before they permanently affect oral growth.

  • Myobrace providers first try to identify poor oral habits such as long-term pacifier use, tongue thrusting, and especially airway problems in fairly young children, (although this can be done on older children as well).
  • They give the patients appliances that help train the oral muscle function in a way where they can correct growth, and prevent future problems.
  • After that, they go through additional phases, like training exercises, to help the child with their anticipatory growth.

The ultimate goal is to leave the child with a correct dynamic function of both muscle and bone growth; as a result, the child would less likely need braces and would have healthy airways.
