The Brace Place Announces Addition of Myobrace® Technology, The “No Brace” Method of Straightening Teeth for Kids as Young as 6
GRANDVIEW, Texas, Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Dr. Michael Grier, DDS, owner of The Brace Place dental practice, announced that he is offering Myobrace®, the “no brace” way of straightening teeth and alleviating jaw development problems. The technique addresses the underlying causes of crooked teeth and can benefit children as young as six years old.
“Kids love them,” said Grier. “Most orthodontic specialists tell parents to wait until their child is a teen to get braces and begin the straightening process. Braces are typically applied at a time when children are especially conscious about their looks. There’s no reason for youngsters to enter adolescence with crooked teeth.”
Children can develop crooked teeth for any number of reasons. Braces alone straighten teeth but they don’t address arch development or do anything to align the jaws properly. The Myobrace® aligns teeth and works to retrain the mouth muscles to correct bad swallowing and breathing problems.
The Myobrace® is worn for one or two hours a day and overnight while sleeping. The system is ideal for children ages 6-12. While older children will benefit from the Myobrace®, they may also require braces at a later time. The device comes in multiple colors that are appealing to children.
A variety of problems can lead to crooked teeth, along with inadequate dental and facial development. A child’s mouth is susceptible to the effects of many habits, including thumb sucking, tongue thrusts, mouth breathing and reverse swallowing. The habits may seem harmless, but over time they interfere with the proper development of facial bones and teeth.
A major problem facing children is tooth overcrowding, often necessitating the removal of adult teeth. The Myobrace® virtually eliminates the need for extractions and youngsters don’t have to worry about braces or retainers. The Myobrace® is comfortable and isn’t visible like regular braces.
Easy to remove and clean, the Myobrace® treats the entire face for a bigger, fuller smile. The device is only worn at home, allowing children to concentrate on their social and academic development at school. Youngsters entering adolescence with straight teeth and a beautiful smile are more self-confident.
The Brace Place offers a comprehensive array of general and orthodontic services, from the Myobrace®, dental implants, dentures and invisible braces. Dr. Grier also provides patients with fillings, crowns and extraction of wisdom teeth.
