How Does the Myobrace Work?

  • The Myobrace® is a removable orthodontic appliance designed to develop the jaws and align the teeth.

  • It deals with incorrect myofunctional habits by teaching children to breathe through their nose, rest the tongue correctly in the roof of the mouth, swallow correctly and continue widening the jaws so they grow to their full and proper size.
