How MRC Appliance work to properly align your teeth, induce proper jaw development and mouth breathing treatments

Ever since its establishment in 1989, MRC has conducted myofunctional habit correction by nailing the use of the single-sized and pre-fabricated dental appliance in children who are still undergoing growth. This was introduced to improve jaw development during growth years. The MRC adopted method is used to ensure proper teeth alignment without the use of dental braces. Such corrections are made by paying attention to precise nasal breathing, retention of oral muscles and improving tongue resting positions.

Myobrace®  achieves this by a light application of forces on the teeth so that they align in their correct and natural position. With a wide range of biological dental treatments and appliances, Myobrace® can be worn for 1-2 hours a day and overnight while the child sleeps.

Each dentition can be treated by using suitable MRC Myobrace® appliances that come in various variants to best suit the user.

The stages of correction with Myobrace
There are four sages of using Myobrace, these are:
  • Habit correction
  • Arch development
  • Dental alignment
  • Retention

While a child undergoes teeth alignment correction and jaw development procedure via Myobrace, it is important to undergo all four stages (or as necessary) to ensure 100% efficiency and lasting.

Let us have a look at how each stage impacts a child’s oral health

Habit correction: Regardless of how comfortable Myobrace is, it is essential to develop habits in kids to get the best out of their treatment period. The first stage of Myobrace involves teaching the patient to shift from breathing through the nose instead of the mouth, keep the lips together when not eating or talking and resting the tongue in the right position. Once the patient consciously practices these oral habits, it gets easier to put them on the Myobrace course. With the changes in oral health practices and Myobrace, proper development of the jaw and teeth alignment is achieved. When undergone properly, Myobrace eliminates the future possibility of getting braces.

Arch Development: The arch in the upper makes room for straight growth of teeth and tongue resting position. Kids over the age of 7 years with an underdeveloped jaw are prescribed to use Myobrace with other wiring techniques that induce proper jaw development. Lack of space in the upper jaw can have health effects ranging from frequent headaches to mood swings in kids. Such underdevelopment also opens room for plaque to solidify in gaps that are unreachable with a brush.

Dental Alignment: During the teenage years, permanent teeth replace milk teeth. To ensure straight growth and alignment of permanent teeth, Myobrace® for Teens can be used.

Myobrace comes with the freedom to be removed whenever the patient wants but this virtue comes with the responsibility to wear them sincerely before exercising untimed removal.

Retention: Once teeth alignment using Myobrace is complete, it is crucial to retain the alignment. Traditional aligners are cemented in line with teeth and are kept to retain shape for an indefinite period of time. This is done to prevent relapse from happening.

Myobrace, on the other hand, offers more orthodontically stable results.
