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, retain oral musculature and
exert light forces to align the teeth.
