Myobrace® deals with habit correction by teaching children to breathe through the nose, hold the tongue in the proper position, and swallow correctly. We do this while widening your child’s jaws, so they grow to their full size and make room for teeth to come in naturally straight.

Have Questions About The Myobrace® System?

Our Muncie dentist shares the answers.

  • When should my child begin treatment with Myobrace®?

    Treatment can begin as soon as poor oral habits are recognized. The earlier the treatment, the better.

    Older children have had more time to establish bad habits, requiring extra effort for successful treatment. However, with good compliance, we can still achieve excellent results!

  • How is Myobrace® treatment more effective than wearing braces?

    Waiting until the permanent teeth come in and then using braces or tooth extraction to correct orthodontic problems doesn’t solve the underlying causes of crooked teeth or incorrect facial development.

    Correcting the poor habits that are the real causes behind these problems provides a permanent and more natural solution. Instead of focusing on forcing the permanent teeth to be straight, the Myobrace® system works to provide sufficient space for the permanent teeth to grow correctly in the first place.

    Our Muncie, IN, family dentist uses a comprehensive approach to help your child have a healthy and beautiful smile for life.

  • What are the poor oral habits that I should watch for in my child?

    It’s long been thought that genetics or having teeth that are too big for small jaws were the cause of crowded, crooked teeth. However, recent research shows that poor oral habits are the real culprits.

    The poor oral habits that contribute to crooked teeth and poor jaw development include:

    • Mouth breathing
    • Tongue thrusting
    • Reverse swallowing
    • Thumb sucking

    If your child practices any of these habits, please schedule a visit. Dr. Pyle can evaluate oral development so we can do any needed corrections immediately.

    The earlier the treatment, the faster and more effective the outcome!
