Villanova Dental Studio is committed to providing patients with the latest innovative treatment solutions for straightening crooked teeth. Myobrace is an orthodontic alternative to traditional braces that eliminates the need for metal brackets and wires. It is a three-stage removable intra-oral appliance system.
Myobrace is a more natural way to help your child strengthen their teeth. This preventative orthodontic solution addresses orthodontic concerns through correcting oral habits, strengthening facial muscles, and treating upper and lower jaw development issues.
Correcting Oral Habits
As with all orthodontic treatments, early intervention is ideal for effective treatment, especially for breaking bad oral health habits. Dr. Barakat will help patients of all ages determine which orthodontic procedure will create a healthy and functional bite as well as lifelong oral health habits.
Oral habits Myobrace can correct:
- Thumb or finger sucking
- Breathing through the mouth
- Thrusting the tongue against the lower teeth when swallowing or speaking
- Using lips to swallow
