McKenzie Dental proudly offers the Myobrace System for the Eugene and Springfield community. The Myobrace System focuses on addressing the underlying causes of crooked teeth, often without the need for braces or extraction of teeth, unlocking natural growth and development. Treatment is best suited to children aged 3 to 15 and involves using a series of removable intra-oral appliances that are worn for 1-2 hours each day, plus overnight while sleeping.
Myobrace is designed to deal with incorrect habits by teaching children to breathe through their nose, rest the tongue correctly in the roof of the mouth, swallow correctly and continue widening the jaws so they grow to their full and proper size. This results in sufficient room for the teeth, allowing them to come in naturally straight and often without the need for braces. This effective treatment of orthodontic problems continues to have outstanding success, and the dentists at McKenzie Dental Center are excited to use it in helping young people in Eugene and Springfield.
Myobrace helps a child to develop the following healthy oral habits:
Waiting until all permanent teeth have come through to begin treatment with braces can unfortunately lead to irreversible damage affecting not only the teeth, but also a child's overall health and development.
Poor oral habits are evident before all permanent teeth are present, which means treatment of the causes can begin much earlier than originally thought. This can be as early as three years of age.
