Myobrace® for Braces Stage 3 - B3
Retention in combination with clear aligners
The B3 has wider tooth channels to accommodate clear aligners and vacuum formed retainers. It focuses on continuing habit correction when patients are wearing clear aligners, but also retaining the correct habits when patients are using vacuum formed or clear retainers. It has small breathing holes to maintain continuous nasal breathing and myofunctional features to promote correct habits. If the patient is using bonded lingual retainers, we recommend the T4A Phase 2 (large).
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 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.
