How MyoFunctional Orthodontics Work
Since 1989 Myofuntional Research Co. (MRC) has been pioneering the use of advanced design technology appliances to correct the myofunctional habits that cause crooked teeth and painful jaw misalignment.The function of the tongue, cheeks and lips determines tooth position. By treating the underlying causes, the goal is to naturally straighten teeth for life.
Best of all…your MyoBrace Appliance only needs to be worn 1-2 hours during the day and overnight while you are sleeping… no ugly uncomfortable braces to bother you during the day! Treatment time can differ depending on “Patient Compliance,” but most treatments take just a few months.
MyoBrace was originally developed for children as early treatment forbad Myofunctional Habits that can be corrected in order to prevent the need for complex orthodontic treatments when the permanent teeth are all present.
From 2-5 years of age, children are growing rapidly and can show signs of an incorrect bite and misaligned teeth. Habits such as thumb sucking, prolonged pacifier use, reverse swallowing, tongue thrusting and mouth breathingcan cause jaws to develop incorrectly and teeth to become crowded and misaligned.
Research shows that these early problems continue in the following stages of development and cause orthodontic problems that become more prominent as the permanent teeth develop. If these habitual, underlying behaviors (tongue thrusting during sleep, reverse swallowing and mouth breathing) continue into your children’s teens, and even into adulthood, teeth will continue to eventually become misaligned, often even after orthodontic treatment. Braces and extractions do NOT resolve the orthodontic issues caused by these myofunctional habits which are best treated as soon as they are evident, thus preventing worse problems later that will be much more expensive and difficult to fix.

SEQUENTIAL ALIGNER TRAYS are Another Great Option
Another Option for straightening your teeth for a fraction of what traditional braces cost is to use Clear Sequential Aligners. Aligner Trays are used for small adjustments mostly to your front teeth.
Treatment lasts 1-5 months, depending on how many trays are required.
3-5 Trays are usually enough, but if necessary a second round of trays can be used.
Cost is based on how many trays are needed.
Trays need to be worn 22 hours per day, 7 days a week for 2-3 weeks. (They may only be removed to eat and brush your teeth.
Upper and Lower Teeth can be aligned at the same time.
