Myosa® for Kids Stage 1 - KS1

Establish a functional airway and habit correction

The KS1 focuses on establishing a functional airway and initial myofunctional habit correction in children who are mouth breathing, especially during sleep. It is used in the mixed dentition stage and has large breathing holes to establish a functional airway and myofunctional features to promote correct habits. Move to the KS2 appliance only when the KS1 is staying in overnight and the patient's breathing function has improved.

KS1 Design Features

The design features of the KS1 are suited to establish a functional airway and initial correction of myofunctional disorders for children in the mixed dentition who are mouth breathers, especially during sleep.

Directions for Use

The Myosa® 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. The Myosa® appliance may change the position of the teeth and jaws, however, the flexibility of the appliance minimises this potential.
