Myosa® for TMJBDS® Stage 3 - S3

Establish nasal breathing and correct TMJ function

The Myosa® for TMJBDS® S3 is used in the third and final stage of treatment, when the patient's Breath Hold Time (BHT) has reached 45 seconds or more. The S3 is primarily designed to finalise the establishment of nasal breathing, while improving breathing and myofunctional disorders. The S3 can also serve as a transition appliance between the first and second phase of TMJBDS® treatment, involving arch development in combination with the Myobrace® appliances. It is for this reason that the S3 is a derivative of the Myobrace®A1 appliance.

S3 Design Features

The design features of the S3 establish and maintain nasal breathing while improving myofunctional disorders in the final stages of TMJBDS® treatment.

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, though the flexibility of the appliance minimises this potential.
