Myobrace System and How it Works

Myobrace teeth straightening system was designed for growing children and teens, but can be used as young as three years old, and even for adults.

The appliances help the patients position their tongue in the correct spot (the roof of the mouth), and correct any bad the swallowing habits. Myobrace teaches the patient to breathe through his/her nose. By putting gentle aligning forces on crooked teeth, it also straightens those teeth, widens the jaw and train the muscles in and around the mouth to function properly. Retraining the muscles in and around the mouth to function properly leads to long term stability of the straightened teeth.

Myobrace appliances are worn one to two hours a day and while one sleeps. This is beneficial for those who desire comfortable and inconspicuous treatment.

Orthotropics® and How it Works

orthotropics chaumburg ILOrthotropics® is another type of “Facial Growth Guidance”. This philosophy was developed in the 1950’s as an alternative the shortcomings of traditional orthodontics. Orthotropics, also known as “forwardontics,” promotes positive facial growth. This approach also believes that the ideal development of the face and jaws depends on the correct postures – tongue at rest on the palate, lips sealed and teeth in or near contact. The Bioblok system is most popular, and is sometimes used with the Myobrace system.

Early growth guidance is the best way to avoid crowding and extraction of permanent teeth. Our goal is to create facial balance and to minimize problems with airway and TMJ. Again, adults can also benefit from this philosophy and treatment approach.
