The T4 provides final alignment of the teeth and jaws. Its firm polyurethane construction also provides excellent retention. The hollow tongue tag encourages final tongue position. The T4 is available in regular and large.
MRC has pioneered the use of appliances to correct myofunctional habits in growing children and has proven success in orthodontic correction without braces. This treatment can also lead to better facial development in growing children. The key to this treatment is correcting the position and function of the tongue, obtaining correct nose breathing and retraining the oral muscles to function correctly.
Myobrace® appliances effectively train the tongue to position correctly in the upper jaw, retrain oral musculature and exert light forces to align the teeth.
The Myobrace for Teens™ is most effective when a patient has most of their permanent teeth (ages 10 to 15) and is available in a range of sizes.
Directions for use
The T4 must be worn for 1 – 2 hours each day and overnight while sleeping and always remember to follow these few simple steps:
• Lips together – at all times except when speaking.
• Breathe through the nose – to assist the development of the upper and lower jaws, and to achieve the correct bite.
• No lip activity when swallowing – which allows the front teeth to develop correctly.
Cleaning the Myobrace T4
The T4 should be cleaned under warm running water every time the patient removes it from their mouth. Use Myoclean™ tablets to correctly clean twice a week. Myoclean™ is the recommended cleaning agent for MRC’s appliances.
