Myobrace Gold Coast
Gold Coast Dental & Denture Centre have expanded their services for children and now offer Myobrace on the Gold Coast for children aged 5-10 years. Myobrace is a natural and effective way to treat poor oral habits, also known as myofunctional habits, that are the underlying causes of crooked teeth.
Benefits Of Using Myobrace For Kids
Myobrace is a preventative pre orthodontic treatment for naturally straightening children’s teeth before their adult teeth come in.
Misaligned teeth and malocclusion is often attributed to genetics. However, recent research suggests that it’s more accurately a result of poor oral habits as a child that greatly impacted the growth and alignment of the teeth and jaw.
Myobrace allows parents to act quickly and correct a child’s poor oral habits while their faces are still growing. Poor myofunctional habits such as mouth breathing, incorrect tongue position, thumb sucking and reverse swallowing can be amended and prevent the need for expensive and lengthy orthodontic treatment in adult life.
The Myobrace method can:
Teach a child to breathe through their nose
Widen and develop the jaw and face
Enable the tongue to rest in the correct position
Improve the position of lips
Permanently straighten teeth without the need for braces

The Myobrace treatment is done through a series of removal dental appliances that are worn for 1-2 hours a day and overnight while the children are sleeping.
The appliances come in a range of types depending on the child and their individual circumstances. The treatment typically consists of four stages:
