Preventive Orthodontics

Receiving preventive orthodontic treatment care earlier rather than later can greatly benefit the development of your child’s teeth and mouth, as well as influence their future oral health.

Why do Orthodontic Problems Occur?

Did you know that every three out four children have crooked teeth or improperly aligned jaws? While many people think that misaligned of the teeth occurs primarily because of genetic reasons, latest research has shown that orthodontic problems like the incorrect alignment of jaws and other orthodontic problems like tooth crowding and spacing arise because of strange dental habits which the child picks up during childhood.

What is Myobrace?

Myobrace is an orthodontic system which is correcting aimed at correcting improper myofunctional habits in children which can cause tooth misalignment by ensuring that the child learns correct dental habits. Manufacturers of Myobrace also offer an educational program for the kids, Myobrace Activities, which are performed twice a day while wearing the Myobrace. These activities consist of various breathing, tongue, lip, cheek and swallowing exercises.

  • Create facial symmetry by influencing jaw growth
  • Reduce the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth. Sports injuries and other types of mouth trauma are avoidable with preventive orthodontic treatment
  • Preserve space for teeth that haven’t erupted
  • Reduce the need for a tooth removal. Many issues that lead to teeth extraction can be caught early with preventive orthodontic treatment from dentarayclinic.
  • Reduce treatment time with braces
  • Reduce the need for jaw surgery. With preventive orthodontic treatment from dentarayclinic, your child can eliminate bad habits (such as thumb sucking) that can possibly lead to jaw surgery.
