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 in la lucia

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.

Myobrace for adults

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, our dentists 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.

We are equally enthusiastic about the long-term corrective benefits of preventing a relapse into bad habits. When you come in for a Myobrace consultation, 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.

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.

Myofunctional Treatment

Some people have heard about Myobraces in passing yet most are understandably unaware of what this orthodontic treatment approach is really all about. Myobraces are meant to remedy problematic oral muscle functionality. The overarching aim is to correct kids’ developing tooth and jaw misalignments. Such issues with the jaw and teeth are typically evident as soon as 4 years of age.

Oral Muscle Pressure
If oral muscle pressure is abnormal, it has the potential to alter the position of teeth and affect the stability of the dental arch. Oral health care experts agree everything from the pressure applied by the tongue and lips to childhood habits impact tooth position. Examples of such poor childhood habits include thumb-sucking, lip-sucking, finger-sucking, biting of the fingernails and the thrusting of the tongue against the backs of the teeth.

About Myobraces
Myobraces address the flawed myofunctinal habits detailed above. This treatment is specifically designed for youngsters. The aim of enhancing flawed myofunctional habits as soon as possible is to ensure the child has optimal dental alignment and jaw growth across posterity. The challenge is to pinpoint the true cause of the crooked or otherwise altered teeth as quickly as possible.

Ideally, the initial signs of crooked teeth or other flaws will be identified at an early age when the child is still capable of responding to Myobrace treatment. When applied at the proper point in time, Myobrace treatment decreases or even eliminates the need for subsequent treatment through dental braces. Myobraces establish the foundation for proper jaw bone growth, generating the space necessary for the teeth to grow as they should from the early years onward.

How Myobrace Treatment Works
Myobraces rely on a series of appliances that improve oral health in a number of important ways. These specialized appliances improve flawed habits that lead to improper dental development while simultaneously applying light forces that align teeth into the perfect positions. All a patient has to do is wear the Myobrace appliance for an hour or two each day and at night while sleeping. This use along with a combination of myofunctional exercises on a daily basis will spur significant change in surprisingly little time. The specific appliances used hinge on the child’s unique orthodontic issues as well as his or her age.

Myobrace treatment ultimately helps your child breathe through the nose as opposed to the mouth, keep the lips together, swallow properly and attain the proper tongue resting position. This treatment will develop and align the jaws, correct those flawed oral habits, improve facial development and ultimately straighten the teeth.


  1. Myobrace treatment does more than simply straighten the teeth that are toward the front of the mouth. Myobraces also eliminate negative influences on patients’ teeth as well a facial development. Myobraces help kids as they prevent improper muscular habits from developing that can compromise the development of the face. Furthermore, Myobrace treatment enhances patient posture stemming from a healthier jaw. Myobraces have the potential to minimize allergies.

  3. When is the best age for Myobrace treatment to be applied?
    Myobraces have the potential to remedy an array of oral health issues. The question is when is the best time for Myobraces to be applied. In general, most dentists tend to agree that Myobrace treatment is best applied to children when they are still growing. Ideally, Myobraces will be applied at the point in time when the first permanent teeth show. These teeth typically show between the ages of 6-10. In general, Myobraces should be applied when the patient is between the ages of 5 and 15. As long as your child is between these ages and you believe he or she will prove capable of wearing Myobraces for an hour each day and at night while sleeping, you have everything to gain from trying this breakthrough treatment.
  4. In Adults: treatment is possible ,especially in relapses of fixed orthodontic treatment;it may take longer than children. Treatment maybe accentuated and accelerated by a more intensive approach in using appliances for a longer duration and following exercises and diet program more intensely.

Timely treatment with Myobraces and other proven approaches really does have the potential to improve your child’s dental health. Early treatment as your child’s teeth and jaw are developing will help correct the habits that caused the problems to start with.
