That perfect smile – priceless. If your teeth are slightly crooked or not properly aligned, it affects not only your smile but chewing, breathing, speech and even your facial structure. Maybe you’ve always dreamt of having perfectly straight teeth, but have been put off by the thought of more intrusive procedures, such as traditional braces.
The good news is that we are now one of the leading Myobrace dental practitioners. Myobrace is a gentle system of re-aligning your teeth without the need for traditional metal braces that have to be worn twenty-four hours a day, and tightened each month until they are eventually removed. When you tighten traditional braces, it usually causes pain and discomfort for two days afterwards, meaning that your food intake would be restricted to fluids.
The Myobrace system is considered to be preferable to traditional braces as it does not only straighten the teeth, but looks to fix the actual causes of skew teeth in the first place. It is therefore a more all-encompassing approach.
As Myobrace dental practitioners , we are intimately acquainted with the Myobrace technique. We do a proper assessment on each of our patients to ensure a tailored, perfect outcome. Myobrace has been around for twenty years and has a track record of yielding great results, similar to when you use traditional metal braces.
If you’re looking for Myobrace, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll use a non-invasive technique with an appliance or trainer that you’ll only need to wear for one or two hours a day, and while sleeping. To support your tooth realignment, we’ll look at the causes of crooked teeth that are specific to you, and coach you on developing correct myofunctional habits. Simply put, this means we’ll put a stop to any bad dental habits – such as pressing your tongue the incorrect way – that are getting in the way of your teeth being straight.
These two things, namely, correct myofunctional habits, along with the training equipment, will put you on the path to the loveliest of smiles for life.
How much does the Myobrace System™ cost?
The Myobrace cost for each client varies depending on the degree of correction required. This will determine for how many months you will need to be treated. Your Myobrace treatment cost is also influenced by whether or not you are an adult, as it is easier to correct your jaw while you are still growing.
At Family dental care, we will discuss the Myobrace cost with you after our initial patient assessment in your first consultation. Treatment is usually ongoing for 18 months.
The cost is also influenced by what diagnostic procedures are required upfront. This may involve taking photos, making moulds and possibly doing X-rays as well.
As with all our services, we aim to bring you the best results, using the latest proven techniques, at the most affordable cost.
Myobrace for adults – what you need to know
Myobrace for adults is as effective for children, except that a greater degree of specialisation may be required. This is because it is easier to set straight misaligned teeth when your jaw is still developing. Myobrace for adults might therefore entail you having to wear your trainer for a bit longer every day, although you certainly won’t need to wear it all day or at work at all, for that matter.
We may also prescribe more complex myofunctional exercises for you. Myobrace for adults therefore involves a bit more work; extra ongoing care from you, the patient; as well as possibly a slightly longer term of treatment. Bad habits are harder to break the older you are, but there is no such thing as impossible.

Myobrace treatment outcomes
If you’re looking for Myobrace in SANDTON, our branch here is as specialised as any other. Our approach is very much results based. We could sum up our approach by saying that besides straightening your teeth, our goals are to: correct tongue position, refrain from extractions as much as possible, correct breathing through the nasal passages, eradicate lip movement when you swallow, and to ultimately ensure good facial development, especially in younger patients.

What causes crooked teeth?
The number of children with wonderfully straight teeth are far outnumbered by those who don’t have perfectly positioned teeth! That’s why when you come in for the Myobrace system in CENTURION, our dentists at our Waterfall branch pay detailed attention to the causes of your crooked teeth in the first place. Correcting the underlying cause, especially in young children, is one of our passions. Contrary to popular belief, a too-small jaw or big teeth are not the main issue. The real culprits are issues such as thumb-sucking, swallowing incorrectly, open-mouthed breathing, as well as tongue placement and extraneous factors such as asthma. Correcting errant teeth is only a short-term solution if bad habits are resumed.
Our CENTURION branch is equally enthusiastic about the long-term corrective benefits of preventing a relapse into bad habits. When you come in for a Myobrace consultation in our Waterfall branch, we therefore recommend that you arrive with a prior self-assessment of any bad habits you suspect you or your child may have. Awareness is the first step in the process.
We are passionate about correcting all these myofunctional habits – for life.
While ongoing education at all our branches is a priority, we are particularly versed in research into the Myobrace developments at this branch. Myobrace represents a breakthrough in orthodontic techniques and we always want to be at the forefront of advances in the industry. We get together with peers at our other branches often to share the findings of our ongoing research.
Looking for a no-braces solution to improve your tooth positioning? We can’t wait to welcome you to the Myobrace system, where the orthodontic tool – a removable applicator – means you’ll be making your way fuss-free to your new smile in not too long at all.
