In our opinion children’s teeth and their alignment should be looked at as early as 4 years old. The earlier habits and overcrowding are treated the more likely teeth can be straightened naturally without braces and extractions.

What is the difference to normal Orthodontic treatment?
- We start as early as five years old to stop habits whereas conventional orthodontic treatment starts at 12 or 13 years of age.
- our approach is non-invasive which means we do not extract teeth to make teeth fit rather develop the jawbone to create space for all teeth
- Our approach aims to correct and prevent other health issues such as breathing problems.
- with our methods, teeth move naturally to the position they are supposed to be. In conventional orthodontics teeth are forced into positions they might not necessarily move naturally, this is also the reason why after conventional orthodontic treatment you must wear a retainer. Otherwise the teeth move back in their previous position.
How do you treat misaligned teeth?
With our approach to orthodontic treatment, we focus on correcting the underlying causes of crooked teeth, rather than just straightening them out.
What do you use to straighten teeth?
We use Myobrace appliances.
How long does my child have to wear the Myobrace appliance?
They are worn for a few hours each day and overnight while sleeping.
What is the Myobrace appliance doing?
It corrects poor oral habits, such as mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, and incorrect swallowing patterns.
Why must habits such as mouth breathing, thumb sucking etc be stopped?
These habits can cause the teeth and jaw to develop incorrectly, leading to crowded or crooked teeth and a too small jawbone. By correcting these habits, Myobrace helps the teeth and jaw develop naturally, resulting in straighter teeth and a healthier mouth.
What else is important to make the Myobrace treatment a success?
We teach children how to breathe through their nose, rest the tongue properly in the roof of their mouth and swallow correctly.
