Myobrace for Braces - B1
ESTABLISH NASAL BREATHING AND HABIT CORRECTION
The B1 provides habit correction. It features a braces channel, tongue tag, tongue elevators, an extended lip bumper and high sides to correct tongue position, discourage overactive lip function while encouraging nasal breathing and is designed to be used in conjunction with a fixed braces or clear aligner treatment. Correcting myofunctional habits will not only result in better overall health, but also helps to create a more stable change, less likely to relapse.
B1 Design Features
The design features of the B1 are ideally suited for the initial correction of any malocclusion (except Class III) in the mixed and permanent dentition with braces or aligners, while also helping to correct the breathing and soft tissue dysfunctions that are the cause of it.
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 B 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 in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopaedics which looked at MRC's appliances in combination with braces. This paper can be found here.
