Myobrace® for Kids Stage 1 - K1

Establish nasal breathing and habit correction

The K1 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 small breathing holes to establish continuous nasal breathing and myofunctional features to promote correct habits. Move to the K2 when the K1 is staying in overnight and nasal breathing has been established.

For children who are mouth breathers, the Myobrace®K0 should be used before the K1.

K1 Design Features

The design features of the K1 are suited to establish nasal breathing and the initial correction of myofunctional disorders in the mixed dentition.

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.
