Trainer for Braces Phase 2 - T4B Phase 2
Corrects arch form during braces treatment
The Trainer for Braces Phase 2 (T4B2) shares many features common in with the T4B to improve the comfort and effectiveness of braces, while the firmer construction and high sides make it ideal for cases where upper jaw development is required. It's also suitable for Class II correction in conjunction with fixed orthodontics.
The T4B2 protects the soft tissue inside the mouth (lips and cheeks) from irritation by brackets and wire—a major cause of discomfort in the initial stages of orthodontics. In addition, the T4B2 assists in the correction of myofunctional habits that cause the teeth and jaws to develop incorrectly. These include myofunctional habits such as tongue thrusting, incorrect swallowing, and mouth breathing. This improves the effectiveness and stability of orthodontic treatment.
The T4B is NOT a mouthguard. For sports protection, ask your orthodontist for a Powrgard®4-Braces mouthguard.
Directions for Use
The Trainer 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 T4B2 with the tongue tag facing up.
Place the T4B2 into your mouth.
Keep your tongue positioned on the tongue tag.
Keep your lips together and breathe through your nose.
Cleaning the T4B2
The Trainer 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.
