Myobrace® for Braces Stage 1 - B1
Establish nasal breathing and habit correction with braces
The B1 focuses on establishing nasal breathing and myofunctional habit correction for patients who are using braces. It is soft and flexible, giving the best compliance, while being adaptive to any arch form and malocclusion. It has small breathing holes to establish continuous nasal breathing and myofunctional features to promote correct habits. It also features braces channels to accommodate brackets and wires. The B1 is ideal for initial levelling and alignment with fixed orthodontics but can also be used throughout the entire orthodontic treatment plan.
Directions for Use
The Myobrace® appliance is to be used for one to two hours each day, plus overnight while sleeping. The patient's teeth may become slightly sensitive in the early stages of treatment. This is quite normal, however, if pain becomes excessive, decrease application time with the aim to build it back up once the appliance is accustomed to and sensitivity subsides.
Hold the Myobrace® with the tongue tag facing up.
Place the Myobrace® into your mouth.
Keep your tongue positioned on the tongue tag.
Close down on the Myobrace® and feel it working to align your front teeth and jaws.
Keep your lips together and breathe through your nose.
Cleaning the Myobrace® B1
The Myobrace® appliance should be cleaned under warm running water every time the patient removes it from their mouth.
Use Myoclean™ tablets to thoroughly clean twice a week. Myoclean™ is the recommended cleaning agent for all MRC appliances.
Myobrace® for Braces - Case Studies
MRC clinics primarily focus on myofunctional orthodontics and therefore do not typically treat patients with fixed orthodontics alone. Although our customers around the world continue to enjoy the benefits of the for Braces series, we are unable provide one of our own cases that has started and finished in the B series. You may be interested in a case report that was in the 'American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopaedics' which looks at MRC's appliances in combination with braces.
