Myobrace for Juniors Stage 1 - J1
Establish nasal breathing and habit correction
The J1 focuses on establishing nasal breathing and initial myofunctional habit correction. It is soft and flexible, giving the best compliance while being adaptive to any arch form and malocclusion. It has large breathing holes to initially open the airway and a posterior air spring base that encourages exercise of the muscles of mastication. Move to the J2 when the J1 is staying in overnight and nasal breathing has been established.
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 J1
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.
