Design characteristics of the T1 BWS

  1. Braces Channel – Accommodates upper (and lower) BWS TM brackets and orthodontic archwire while protecting cheeks and gums.

  2. Tongue tag, tongue guard and elevators – trains the tongue to sit in the correct position in the upper jaw.

  3. Extended lip bumper and high sides – discourages overactive lip function and encourages nasal breathing.

How the T1 BWS works

Myobrace® T1 BWS

The T1 BWS works by repositioning the upper front teeth forwards and the lower front teeth backwards, which assists to correct the crossbite*. The T1 BWS also helps to correct the tongue position, further improving the upper jaw shape and tooth position.

Goals of treatment

• Breathe through the nose.
• Tongue rest position in the upper jaw, not the lower jaw.
• No activity in the lip muscles when swallowing.
• Upper front teeth move forwards and the lower front teeth move backwards correcting the underbite.
• Avoid jaw surgery and jaw joint problems.

Directions for use:

Important Points

The steps for correct habit and facial development are:

• Lips together at all times except when speaking or eating.

• Breathe through the nose, to assist the development of the upper and lower jaws, and to achieve the correct bite.

• No lip activity when swallowing, which allows the front teeth to develop correctly.

• Improved dental alignment.

• Improved facial development.

For the Myobrace® to work, you must correct your poor myofunctional habits.
