Arch development for use with MRC's appliances
Effective arch and jaw development to enhance habit correction
The intrinsic link between function (breathing and myofunctional habits) and structure (arch form, dental alignment and occlusion) means that both factors need to be considered when trying to correct either. Although MRC's appliances address both structure and function, there are instances where assistance is needed from auxiliary techniques. Arch development used with MRC's appliances focuses on altering the patient's structure to enhance habit correction and, as such, they must conform to biological principles and promote habit correction, not hinder it. MRC's arch development range uses a select group of appliances that specialise in this and are used in conjunction with both the Myobrace® and Myosa® treatment systems.

The Farrell Bent Wire System™ (BWS)
For simultaneous arch development and habit correction
The Farrell Bent Wire System™ (BWS) is a light-wire appliance and is the main arch development technique utilised in Myobrace® treatment.
Used simultaneously with the Myobrace® appliances, it improves function and arch form.
For correction of severe arch constriction and overjets
The Biobloc appliances are removable acrylic appliances that focus on arch development and oral posture, but can interfere with correct function.
Although their use is not preferred, they can be valuable techniques in certain cases.
