Myobrace® for Kids Broad Stage 1 - K1 Broad
Establish nasal breathing and habit correction
The K1 Broad focuses on establishing nasal breathing and myofunctional habit correction for patients with a genetically broad arch form. 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. Move to the K2 Broad only when the K1 Broad is staying in overnight and nasal breathing has been established.
K1 Broad Design Features
The design features of the K1 Broad are suited to establish nasal breathing and the initial correction of myofunctional disorders in the mixed dentition for patients with a genetically broad arch form.
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® K1 Broad
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.
