The Myobrace® System

Traditional metal braces can straighten your child’s teeth, but they don’t solve the fundamental issues that cause crooked teeth to begin with. Myobrace is an innovative treatment that focuses on addressing the underlying causes of crooked teeth, often without the need for braces or extraction of teeth.

The causes of crooked teeth

Teeth do not become crooked by chance. The latest evidence shows that most orthodontic problems are the result of incorrect jaw development. This limits the space available for teeth and prevents them from settling into their ideal natural position. Myobrace works by addressing this issue.

The Myobrace difference

The Myobrace system consists of a series of intra-oral appliances that are worn for one hour each day plus overnight while sleeping. Different appliances are used depending on the child’s age and type of orthodontic problem.

How Myobrace works

The Myobrace system exerts light forces that work to help expand the arch-form, develop and align the jaws, and straighten teeth. It also helps correct poor oral habits, optimize facial development, and improve overall health. Best of all, it can make it so braces are never necessary at all.

Is Myobrace right for your child?

Treatment is best suited to children aged 3 to 15. To best way to see if it’s right for your child is to make an appointment for an assessment. Dr. Filice will examine your child’s teeth and jaws, and make a treatment recommendation based on the exam.
