Typically treatment for crooked teeth begins at about 12 years old when the child has a mixture of primary and permanent residing in their mouth.
Did you know that pre-orthodontic treatment can significantly reduce the chances that teeth will need to be removed, and also help jaw and facial development so that time in braces can be shortened or even not needed?
Myobrace® has designed a state of the art appliance that aims to correct the causes of crooked teeth and poor facial development. These appliances are worn only 2 hours during the day, as well as overnight. The treatment is simple and effective and can help avoid needing braces in most cases.
At 5-8 years of age it is ideal to start the Myobrace® treatment. Bad oral habits such as mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, and incorrect swallowing are the major causes of crooked teeth. These problems can be seen from as early as 3-5 years of age. The Myobrace® treatment can assist in correcting these poor oral habits to help straighten your child’s teeth and jaws.
