Myobrace for Braces - B3
The B3 is designed for use in conjunction with upper and lower clear aligners or retainers to improve their effectiveness. The B3 fits over clear aligners to assist in correcting poor myofunctional habits and lower jaw alignment. The combination of habit correction, jaw alignment and arch expansion provided by the Myobrace® for Braces series reduces orthodontic treatment time and ultimately improves stability of the results obtained.
B3 Design Features
The design features of the B3 are ideally suited for the retention of any malocclusion correction (except Class III) in the mixed or permanent dentition with braces or aligners, while continuing to correct the breathing and soft tissue dysfunctions that were the root 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 B3
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.
