Braces on Waiheke – Part 2

In this article we’ll look at Myofunctional Research Co. treatment

Myofunctional Research Co. technology is designed to treat developing teeth & jaw crowding problems in children.

Their Trainer and Myobrace Systems are a no-braces approach to straightening your child’s teeth and jaws. (Did you know, three out of four children have crowded teeth and incorrectly developing jaws. These problems can be seen from as early as 5 years of age!)

Treatment uses myofunctional orthodontic techniques to address the poor oral habits (known as myofunctional habits) that are the real, underlying causes of crooked teeth and uses light, intermittent forces to align the teeth. Myofunctional orthodontic techniques have been practiced by Orthodontists and Dentists around the world for over 50 years.

This is done through the use of a series of removable dental appliances that are worn for just 1-2 hours each day and overnight while sleeping. Daily use of the Myobrace combined with regular activities (to improve breathing, muscle function and tongue posture) results in straighter teeth and improved function, leading to optimal facial development and a healthier smile. In a lot of cases better and faster results are achieved with the short term use of a cemented wire device to improve the jaw shape.

With the cases already treated we have great results!

If you are interested in Fastbraces® or Myofunctional Research treatment, the first step to a great smile is to meet one-on-one with Dr. Michael Stevens to determine if you are a candidate for either of the systems. Dr. Michael Stevens then does a free exam of your mouth and smile. If you want to proceed, the next step, is impressions and x-rays to help Dr. Michael Stevens create a customised treatment plan designed specifically for your smile.
