What is Myobrace?
Myobrace is a no-braces orthodontic approach to help straighten your teeth and jaws. Treatment addresses the poor oral habits that are the real cause of crooked teeth.
What causes crooked teeth?
It is a common belief that crowded teeth, incorrect jaw development and other orthodontic problems are caused by either large teeth in small jaws, or other hereditary factors. Modern research has shown that mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, reverse swallowing and thumb sucking - known as incorrect myofunctional habits - are the real causes of incorrect jaw development. Allergies, asthma and an open mouth posture can also contribute towards the jaws developing incorrectly. Bottle feeding, thumb sucking, and dummies during the early stages of a child's life can also contribute to the problem.
How does Myobrace treatment work?
Myobrace treatment involves using a series of appliances which have the proven dual function of correcting habits that cause poor dental development, while also providing light forces to align the teeth into their natural position. This technique is now used by practitioners in more than 100 countries worldwide. Treatment does not involve wearing braces or using complex and uncomfortable dental appliances 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Wearing a Myobrace appliance for one to two hours each day and overnight while sleeping, combined with a series of 'myofunctional exercises' (also known as the Trainer Activities) each day is all it takes for a real change to occur.
How long does treatment generally take?
Myobrace treatment time is usually comparable to the time required for treatment with braces, but instead of being fixed to the teeth, Myobrace appliances are removable and require just one to two hours of use each day plus overnight while sleeping.
Will it work for me or my child?
The Myobrace System is a bit like a training program. Like study or sport, daily commitment and persistence is required to obtain results the best results. It also depends on the patient's inherent biology for change - therefore sometimes the results are rapid and other times it may take more perseverance. Old habits die hard, so the sooner the training program is implemented the better the growth benefits and the more permanent the result.
How much does Myobrace treatment cost?
Generally the cost of Myobrace Treatment is comparable to braces, however your Myobrace Provider can supply you with an exact fee structure. An exact fee structure will be presented upon evaluation and consultation however, treatment fees will vary depending on the number of visits required, the patient's compliance with the appliance, how well the patient performs the activities prescribed to them, and how quickly the patient responds to the treatment. If treatment is started while the patient is younger, generally treatment will cost less than if it is left until later.
Will treatment be painful?
No. During the first few days, there may be a small amount of sensitivity, however after these first few days of treatment, this sensitivity should cease.

What is the best age to begin treatment?
The optimum time to begin treatment is when the patient is still growing and the first permanent teeth appear (at around six to ten years of age). If poor myofunctional habits are discovered at an earlier age, it is best to start treatment immediately. Patients over 15 years of age can also be treated but the problems and habits causing the crooked teeth are often more difficult to change at this stage.
What other benefits might I see from using this treatment?
Unlike traditional orthodontics, the aim of Myobrace treatment is not just to have straight front teeth, but also to remove the bad influences on the patients dental and facial development. In children, as a result of improving poor muscular habits patients can experience better facial development and achieve their full genetic potential. Other health benefits of Myobrace treatment methods include improved posture, fewer allergies, and fewer problems with the teeth, mouth and jaw joints (TMJ).
How often do I need to wear it?
The appliances must be worn daily for one to two hours plus overnight while sleeping. Along with wearing the appliance your Myobrace Practitioner may ask you to perform a few simple activities that re-train the oral muscles and help motivate the patient to improve their overall treatment outcome. Any extra effort gives extraordinary results.
What if the patient refuses to wear the appliance?
The key to success is through wearing the appliance. This should be established at the first consultation where the patient is told the importance of correcting bad oral habits. This is not an alternative form of orthodontics. It is a treatment for the underlying causes of the crooked teeth - the poor muscular habits of the mouth and face. If the patient refuses to wear the Myobrace appliance (which is rare to start) this is a real limiting factor in treatment.
When the treatment is complete, will my teeth crowd up again?
Over the course of Myobrace Treatment your Provider will closely monitor the stability of treatment. Generally if the myofunctional problems are corrected, the teeth will stay in their position. However, if there is some unfavorable movement of the teeth after treatment it is important that you contact your Myobrace Provider and discuss your concerns.
Are there any harmful side effects with Myobrace treatment methods?
There have been no reported harmful effects with Myobrace treatment. As the appliances used are very flexible and exert only light intermittent forces that assist in retraining the muscles and mode of breathing, there is little possibility of doing harm. The recommendation to practitioners is always to review patient progress regularly and to ensure the muscle improvements are progressing, there is no irritation caused by the appliances, and that the changes in the alignment of the teeth and jaws are being supported by the surrounding muscle structures.
Are there any signs or reasons why this treatment would not be suitable?
There are a few. The Myobrace System requires daily use over an extended period of time. Non-compliant patients will not achieve a satisfactory result. Age is a significant factor - the older the patient is the more difficult is is to change habits and move the teeth. Patients with extremely crooked teeth and jaw discrepancies which stop the child from physically holding the Myobrace appliance in their mouth can limit treatment possibilities. Complete nasal obstruction can also make Myobrace treatment difficult. There may be other limiting factors and so it's best to speak with a Myobrace Practitioner if you have any concerns.

Whitening improves the appearance of your teeth without removing any of the natural tooth surfaces. Bleaching is a better option than a crown or veneer if you want to lighten the colour of healthy teeth, as the placing of crowns and veneers involves changing the shape of the tooth.

I am really happy with your service and have never been treated like this at a dentist's before ever, I was extremely nervous and the thought of going to the dentist made me panic due to bad experiences in the past but you all put me completely at ease and I trust you all,. I am really pleased with the work you have done on my teeth. I thank you for all the effort you put in and I am now wanting to have a gap infilled with an implant with you.
I have had tooth whitening and the results are spectacular, I have now come back to you to have my implant done - I couldn't believe when I was told that I would have no pain, but I felt no pain either during or after the procedure which took 13 minutes from me sitting in the chair to being out talking to the receptionist again ! I would recommend anyone who needs an implant to be done to go right ahead and not to worry like I did, the Clent dental team made me feel very relaxed and looked after me extremely well
I needed fillings doing and was treated to top quality care, I now have lovely white restorations. I decided to have tooth whitening done as I never smiled on any family photographs and was always aware of the colour of my teeth. I now have gleaming white teeth and my wife finds it frustrating because she cant keep me out of the photos now! I am also more confident of my smile at work now and as my job involves talking to people a lot it has made a huge difference to me professionally. Dr Turner and his team made me feel relaxed and at ease.
I came to you to have my teeth straightened but wasn't sure you would be able to do this as I am in my 30's. You fitted me with clear / white braces and my lower teeth are now perfect after only 6 months. So perfect it has made me want my upper teeth to be the same ! I thought my upper teeth were ok but now I realize I want a perfect smile which I know you can get for me I will be back to get this done soon.
Excellent Service all round, my wife thinks so too and I have recommended my work colleagues who has had treatment too, excellent Dentist and treatment.
If you are frightened of the Dentist this is the place to come, face your fears & overcome them I did, its easy.
