Myobrace in Torquay

smiling kid during dental appointment At Torquay Smiles, we understand the importance of early intervention when it comes to your child’s dental health. That’s why we offer Myobrace—a system that helps expand the teeth and jaw, reducing the complexity, severity, and cost of orthodontics later in life.

If you or a close relative have issues with the jaw, bite, or crowding, there’s a good chance your child will too, based on family genetics. Other possible causes include mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, reverse swallowing, open mouth posture, and thumb sucking.

By scheduling a free consultation with us now, we can evaluate your child’s dental needs and create a personalised plan for an easier dental future and better outcomes.

How Does It Work?

Myobrace is a dental procedure focused on addressing the underlying causes of crooked teeth, often without braces or tooth extraction, allowing for their natural growth and development. It involves using varying aligners and bite regulation splints for 1-2 hours per day, and while sleeping to help nudge teeth in the right direction, while the jaw is still soft and easy to manipulate.

The duration of care varies from a few months to a few years, depending on the case. However, investing time now will ultimately save time and costs on more complex orthodontic treatments later in life. We review progress every 12-18 months to assess how well the correction worked.

What to Expect

Our team starts with taking impressions of your child’s teeth and conducting scans or X-rays to understand what’s happening underneath the surface. We use this information to direct the teeth in the correct direction for optimal results.

This process helps to

  • Correct poor oral habits
  • Develop & align the jaws
  • Straighten the teeth
  • Optimise facial development
  • Improve overall health
  • Promote healthy eating habits

It does so by teaching children to breathe through their nose, rest their tongue properly in their mouth, swallow correctly, and widen the jaws so they grow to their full and proper size. Now they have room for their teeth to come in naturally straight, and often eliminate the need for braces.
