How the LST works

The Lip Seal Trainer assists in training the lips to stay together and improve lip strength. This is essential for the correction of chronic mouth breathing.

For children with poor lip seal and open mouth posture, the device includes features which allow progression of lip competency. The Training Board feature can be used as a starting point for the first month before progressing to the Lip Seal Spade. By holding either the Lip Seal Spade or the Training Board between the lips, the patient trains their habitual lip posture to be sealed. It can also be used in conjunction with a Myobrace® or Myosa® appliance for added difficulty.

Once a patient can easily hold the Training Board between their lips, they can attempt to hold the Lip Seal Spade between their lips, which requires extra tone and strength for advanced training.

Directions for use:

It is recommended that the Lip Seal Trainer is firstly used in combination with the Myobrace® appliance.

  1. Place the Lip Seal Trainer between the lips with the end touching the Myobrace® appliance then lightly close the lips enough to hold it in place. Continue this for 10 minutes while you are wearing the Myobrace® appliance.
  2. Remove the Myobrace® appliance and use the Lip Seal Trainer on its own for another 2 minutes. Combine with 5 minutes of Lip Trainer™ use, twice daily, or as instructed by your practitioner.
