MYOBRACE

1. What is Myobrace?

Myobrace is a relatively new and exciting innovation in orthodontics that has gained much attention in recent years. This technology has revolutionized the conventional approach to orthodontics, offering an alternative to traditional braces. But, what exactly is Myobrace? We will explore the’s ins and outs of it, helping you understand what it’s all about.

It is a no-braces orthodontic approach to help you straighten your teeth and jaws. It is a preventative pre-orthodontic treatment that focuses on addressing the underlying causes of crooked teeth or spacing teeth, often without the need for braces or extraction of teeth, unlocking natural growth and development.

2. How does Myobrace work?

Myobrace works by targeting the habits that can result in the development of crooked teeth or spacing teeth. These habits typically include mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, reverse swallowing, and thumb sucking. The Myobrace system uses a series of intra-oral appliances worn for 1 hour each day and overnight while sleeping.

These appliances are designed to correct poor oral habits, develop and align the jaws, create space for permanent teeth to grow straight, and optimize facial development. It is an approach that addresses the root causes of crooked teeth or spacing teeth rather than simply correcting the outcome.

3. Myobrace: how long does treatment take?

One of our customers’ most frequently asked questions relates to the duration of Myobrace treatment. How long will it take? The answer is complex, as with most dental and orthodontic treatments, since it significantly depends on the patient’s condition.

Myobrace is an innovative orthodontic approach that focuses on straightening the teeth and addresses the poor oral habits that cause the misalignment in the first place. It is often used for children as it can exploit the natural growth and development phase to correct dental and facial irregularities.

3.1. Understanding the duration of Myobrace treatment

Myobrace treatment time varies widely from patient to patient. In general, most of the treatment plans range between 1-2 years. However, the exact duration depends on several factors, including the severity of misalignment, the patient’s age, and compliance with the treatment.

3.2. Severity of the problem

The degree of dental misalignment significantly determines the treatment time. Naturally, minor misalignments will need less time to correct than severe ones.

3.3. Patient Age

Its treatment is most effective when started at a young age by changing the bad habits, ideally between  4-10 years old when the jaw is still developing. The treatment takes longer in older children and adults as their jaw growth is complete or near completion.

3.4. Compliance with the treatment

The success and duration of the Myobrace treatment greatly depend on the patient’s compliance with wearing the Myobrace appliance and performing the myofunctional exercises. The appliance should ideally be worn for 1 hour during the day and overnight while sleeping. Consistency is key here; failure to wear the appliance as directed can extend the treatment time.

It’s also important to note that the disease treatment involves regular visits to the orthodontist for monitoring and adjustments. The frequency of these visits can also influence the overall duration of the treatment.

Myobrace is a preventive pre-orthodontic treatment whose ultimate goal is to correct poor oral habits while guiding the growth and development of the jaw and face. This makes the treatment time worthwhile as it’s about achieving straight teeth and promoting optimal oral health.

4. Myobrace: how often do I need to wear it? Wearing the Myobrace: Recommended duration.

The Myobrace system is a revolutionary no-braces approach to straightening teeth and expand the jaws. It focuses on correcting the causes of misaligned teeth and developing the jaws correctly, which is often the root of the problem. However, to reap the maximum benefits of this system, it’s crucial to understand how often you need to wear it.

The general recommendation for wearing the Myobrace appliance is at least 1  hour each day and overnight while sleeping. The device’s effectiveness is directly related to how often it’s worn, with consistent use leading to optimal results. However, the exact duration may vary depending on the severity of the malocclusion (misalignment of teeth) and the patient’s age.

Let’s delve further into why this is so:

4.1. Duration of wear and effectiveness

The Myobrace device teaches the mouth to maintain a natural position, with the tongue resting on the roof of the mouth, lips closed comfortably, and teeth slightly touching or apart. This helps align the teeth naturally over time. However, this process requires consistency. Wearing the device for only a few minutes daily will allow the muscles to learn and maintain the correct position.

4.2. The severity of the malocclusion

The severity of the malocclusion can also impact how long you’ll need to wear your Myobrace. More severe cases might require prolonged use, while mild cases may see results sooner. Your orthodontist can provide a more accurate timeline based on your specific situation.

4.3. Patient Age

Younger patients often see the best results because their jaws are growing and more susceptible to change. Therefore, they may not need to wear the device as long as older patients whose jaws have finished developing. However, even for adults, the Myobrace can still be effective, but it may take longer to see results.

Remember, the Myobrace system isn’t just about wearing a device; it’s about changing poor oral habits, including incorrect swallowing and breathing. Hence, the Myobrace treatment also includes a series of ‘myofunctional exercises,’ also known as the ‘Myobrace activities,’ that should be performed daily. These activities are designed to improve breathing, muscular function, and tongue and lip posture, and they contribute significantly to the success of the treatment.

5. Myobrace: what are the benefits?

Most people are familiar with traditional braces and Invisalign when it comes to orthodontic treatment. However, a new approach, Myobrace, is becoming increasingly popular due to its unique features and numerous benefits.

Myobrace is a no-braces approach to straightening your teeth and jaws. It focuses on correcting the underlying causes of crooked teeth or spacing teeth, primarily the poor oral habits established during childhood. The Myobrace system uses a several of intra-oral appliances, which are worn for 1 hour each day and while sleeping. These appliances help correct poor oral habits while applying light force to align the teeth.

5.1. Promotes proper facial development

The Myobrace system not only straightens teeth but also aids in developing the face and jaw. It promotes correct tongue positioning, nose breathing, and lip sealing, all contributing to proper facial development.

5.2. Prevents oral health issues

Myobrace helps prevent problems like gum disease and tooth decay by correcting poor oral habits. It also reduces the chances of needing extractions or complex orthodontic treatments in the future.

5.3. Improves overall health

Myobrace can positively affect overall health, too. Proper oral habits promote better breathing, improving sleep quality and reducing the risk of sleep disorders. It can also help improve posture and prevent jaw joint problems.

5.4. More comfortable and convenient

Unlike traditional braces, Myobrace appliances are removable, making them easier to clean and more comfortable to wear. They must only be worn for a few hours daily and during sleep, so they are less disruptive.

5.5. Suitable for children and adults

Myobrace treatment is most effective in children aged 6-10, as it can guide the growth and development of their jaws and teeth. However, it can also be used with older children and adults, although the treatment may take longer, and the results may be less dramatic.

5.6. Less dependence on retainers

Once the treatment is complete, there is typically less dependence on retainers than traditional braces. This is because Myobrace focuses on addressing the root cause of the problem, which leads to more permanent results.

Suppose you are interested in learning more about Myobrace. In that case, it’s advisable to consult with an experienced orthodontist who can assess your or your child’s needs and determine if this treatment approach is suitable.

6. How do I get started with Myobrace?

6.1. Consultation

The first step to start with the disease treatment is to schedule a consultation with a certified Myobrace provider. During this appointment, the provider will assess the patient’s eligibility for the treatment, discuss the treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have.

6.2. Examination

If deemed suitable for the treatment, an examination will be conducted to assess the condition of the teeth, facial development, and the patient’s oral habits. This could involve taking photographs, x-rays, and molds of the teeth to understand the case better.

6.3. Treatment plan

Post-examination, a customized treatment plan will be made. This usually includes wearing a Myobrace appliance and participating in regular Myobrace activities to improve breathing, tongue position, and swallowing habits.

6.4. Regular reviews

Once the treatment starts, regular appointments will be scheduled to monitor progress and make necessary adjustments to the appliance or treatment plan.

6.5. Completion

The treatment concludes once the patient has achieved the desired results. The duration of the treatment varies for each individual but can range from 1-2 years.

7. Myobrace: How much does it cost?

Many parents come across the Myobrace system when considering orthodontic treatment for children. This innovative approach to straightening teeth and correcting bite issues has gained popularity in recent years due to its non-invasive nature and the promise of treating not just the symptoms but also the underlying causes of orthodontic problems. One of the most common questions parents have about this treatment is, understandably, about the cost. How much does Myobrace treatment cost? Let’s break it down.

The cost of disease treatment varies greatly depending on a variety of factors. These factors include the complexity of the child’s orthodontic issues, the length of treatment required, the specific Myobrace appliances used, and the geographical location of your dental provider.

Myobrace treatment can generally range from $1000 to $3000. Yes, this is a broad range, but it reflects the highly individual nature of orthodontic treatment. Some children may only require a simple Myobrace appliance and a year of treatment, while others may require a series of appliances and several years of treatment.

While the cost of disease treatment might seem steep, it’s essential to remember the benefits that come along with it. This system addresses the root causes of orthodontic issues, potentially preventing the need for more invasive treatments like braces or surgery later on. Plus, the Myobrace system strongly emphasizes teaching children good oral habits, which can have lifelong benefits for their dental health.

If you’re considering it for your child, the best thing to do is schedule a consultation with a certified provider. They can give you a detailed estimate based on your child’s needs. And remember, many dental practices offer payment plans or financing options to make treatment more affordable.

8. Myobrace: Does insurance cover it?

As a health-conscious individual, you might have encountered the term ‘Myobrace’ in your quest for better dental health. This system is known for its innovative approach to treating malocclusion (improper teeth alignment) without traditional braces or other dental appliances.

Despite its popularity, one of the most frequently asked questions among potential users is, “Does insurance cover it?” We will address this query in detail.

To set the stage, it is crucial to understand what Myobrace is and how it works. The Myobrace system is a no-braces orthodontic treatment that addresses the primary causes of crooked teeth, particularly poor oral habits such as mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, and incorrect swallowing. By using a series of intraoral appliances that patients wear for 1-2 hours each day and overnight while sleeping, the Myobrace system corrects these poor oral habits and helps to align the teeth and jaws.

Most insurance companies do not automatically cover orthodontic treatments deemed ‘cosmetic’ – meaning they are not necessary for health reasons but are performed to improve appearance. However, if your dentist or orthodontist can prove the treatment is medically necessary, your insurance company may cover some of the cost.

If your dental insurance plan includes coverage for orthodontic treatment, Myobrace treatment may be partly covered. However, its extent can vary widely from plan to plan. Some insurance plans may cover a certain percentage of the cost up to a predetermined limit, while others may have a fixed dollar amount they will pay towards orthodontic treatment.

Unfortunately, in many cases, patients find that their insurance does not cover the full cost of the disease system. This is because insurance companies often set a cap on the amount they will cover for orthodontic treatment, and the cost of disease can exceed this cap. Therefore, you must check with your insurance provider for the specifics of your coverage.

For those without dental insurance or with plans that do not cover orthodontic treatment, its treatment will be an out-of-pocket expense.
