Design characteristics of the T3

  1. Dynamicore - provides excellent arch development.

  2. Tongue Tag, guard and elevators - trains the tongue to position properly.

  3. Tooth slots - for aligning the permanent teeth.

  4. Lip Bumper - trains the lips.

How the T3 works

Myobrace T3
The T3 provides individual tooth alignment in addition to further arch development and habit correction. It features Dynamicore™ to assist in developing the arch-form which provides more space for the erupting dentition. The tooth slots separate and align the anterior teeth. The T3 is available in seven sizes.

MRC has pioneered the use of appliances to correct myofunctional habits in growing children and has proven success in orthodontic correction without braces. This treatment can also lead to better facial development in growing children. The key to this treatment is correcting the position and function of the tongue, obtaining correct nose breathing and retraining the oral muscles to function correctly.

Myobrace® appliances effectively train the tongue to position correctly in the upper jaw, retrain oral musculature and exert light forces to align the teeth.

Patient Selection
The Myobrace for Teens™ is most effective when a patient has most of their permanent teeth (ages 10 to 15) and is available in a range of sizes.

Directions for use

The T3 must be worn for 1 - 2 hours each day and overnight while sleeping and always remember to follow these few simple steps:
• Lips together - at all times except when speaking.
• 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.

Cleaning the Myobrace T3
The T3 should be cleaned under warm running water every time the patient removes it from their mouth. Use Myoclean™ tablets to correctly clean twice a week. Myoclean™ is the recommended cleaning agent for MRC's appliances.

Important Points

The steps for correct dental and facial development are:

• Lips together.

• Breathe through the nose.

• No lip activity when swallowing.

Poor myofunctional habits such as incorrect swallowing and breathing through the mouth are the major cause of misaligned teeth and poor jaw development. Research has shown that the correction of these poor myofunctional habits improves facial and dental development.

Due to the nature of removable appliances, patient compliance is essential. Therefore it is important to only select motivated patients and parents. If motivation is a problem, it may be better to suggest the use of conventional brackets.

 

The T3N

If arch expansion is not required the T3N which does not include Dynamicore™ is also available.
