Cornelius, NC dentist describes the benefits of Myobrace treatment
What if we told you there was a way for you to eliminate the need for braces for your child? What if we told you that orthodontic work may be preventable with appropriate treatment in the early years? Many parents are told that their children could benefit from orthodontic work to straighten their teeth in the teen years to address problems such as overbite, underbite, and crossbite. Some children have gaps in their teeth or teeth that are turned and out of place. Orthodontic treatment can help with this. But what about preventing orthodontics altogether? Our dentist at Holistic Dental Centers in Cornelius, NC, Dr. Carl McMillan, describes the benefits of preventative treatment such as Myobrace.
Understanding Myobrace treatment
At Holistic Dental Centers, we encourage parents to bring their children into the dental office to ask about preventive orthodontic options. Instead of waiting for the adult teeth to come in misaligned and problematic, parents can now choose a proactive approach to orthodontic treatment. Myobrace is one way to achieve results.
Myobrace is a preventative treatment that can be started as soon as the age of five as an early intervention that can correct underlying issues that can impact the way the face and jaw develop, reducing the need for orthodontic work later in the teen years. This is achieved by patients wearing a comfortable and removable oral appliance. Also known as “trainers,” the Myobrace appliance will facilitate proper alignment of the teeth and will aid in reducing problems such as mouth breathing, reverse swallowing, and tongue-thrusting, while also ensuring that the teeth and jaw progress in the proper manner.
What are the benefits of Myobrace treatment?
There are several advantages to using Myobrace as a preventative treatment. Myobrace:
- Improves the development of the face and jaw
- Reduces the chances of requiring orthodontic work
- Straightens teeth without the risk of relapse
- Reduces the chances of developing problems with the teeth, mouth, and muscles (i.e. TMD)
- Improves tongue and lip positions
- Addressees problems such as mouth breathing and tongue-thrusting
Why choose Myobrace oral appliances?
The Myobrace oral appliance has many advantages, including the fact that it can be used as early as age five to correct the jaw and tooth development to reduce the need for braces later. Parents who have concerns about their child’s smile development can bring their child into the Holistic Dental Centers in Cary or Cornelius to discuss their needs and determine if Myobrace treatment can improve the chances for a better aligned and developed smile. This is determined during a consultation visit with our team of professionals.
How do you care for the Myobrace trainers?
Because the trainers are easily removed from the smile and are only worn a few hours each day, they can be taken out and cleaned in-between uses. Our dental staff will educate patients on the care of their appliance.
Who is a candidate for Myobrace treatment?
It is necessary to consult with a team of professionals who can provide a proper evaluation during which patients can ask about this and other treatments for smile enhancement. We welcome new patients to visit our practice in Cornelius, NC to discuss if they are a proper candidate for this or other solutions available in our facility, and to learn more about the process if they decide to move forward with treatment. In most situations, patients with any type of misalignment, or who want to improve jaw development in younger children, may be considered viable candidates. There are special trainers for patients of all ages, including offerings for juniors, kids, teens, and adults, all made in a way to ensure alignment of the natural teeth as a preventative or reactive measure.
