Dr. Barry Raphael, DMD
As a specialist in orthodontics, I had to come to understand that soft tissue dysfunction is an etiology in MOST malocclusions. Then I had to learn to READ the dysfunctions and understand why the maxilla and the occlusion deformed in the ways it does. Finally, I had to find a modality for DEALING with functional habits that orthodontics typically fails to address.
The Myobrace System does all that for me. I often supplement the system with other tooth-moving or bone-stimulating modalities and I will boost the system's effectiveness using remedial Myofunctional therapy and other interdisciplinary practices when the "body" calls for more attention but Myobrace, along with a properly trained and motivated staff, is an easy to implement adjunct and should be a core competency of every Orthodontic and Pediatric practice.
