Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about Myobrace

How does Myobrace work?

The Myobrace system involves a set of dental trainers that can be easily removed and are worn for 1-2 hours every day and overnight while sleeping to help correct myofunctional habits.

When used in conjunction with daily tongue and facial exercises, these trainers help reorganize the muscles and renew muscle memory.

By harnessing the body's natural resources, the Myobrace system can aid in the development of the jaws, improve airway opening, and promote natural teeth alignment.

What is the best time to start Myobrace therapy?

Myobrace system offers greater flexibility and can be used in children as young as 3. It is best to let your dentist examine the condition of your child and follow the recommendation of your doctor.

Is Myobrace safe to put in the mouths of kids?

All Myobrace products are made from safe, biocompatible, BPA-free, medical-grade silicone to ensure their safety and effectiveness. You can purchase Myobrace for kids from our dental clinic in Penang.

Who is not suitable for Myobrace?

The Myobrace system is not suitable for individuals with severe skeletal discrepancies or significant malocclusions. 

As Myobraces is a removable appliance, it needs good compliance to maximize its benefits. Therefore it might not be suitable for individuals with poor compliance.

Does it hurt?

Compared to traditional orthodontics, the Myobrace system utilizes a gentler approach to move teeth and reposition jaws. By working and training the muscles from their habitual position, the Myobrace system may cause only a minor level of soreness initially, which gradually decreases with continued use.

How long does treatment take?

At Skye Dental Penang, our doctor recommends 1-2 hours per day and overnight use of Myobraces. We request that your child not wear the appliance to school but at home when doing homework, playing games, or watching TV.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about Braces

Do braces hurt?

The truth is that there is no need to worry about it because the process of putting on braces does not hurt at all.

However, a little tenderness or mild pain is a normal side effect after the wire adjustment appointment. The discomfort typically disappears within four to seven days.

Do self-ligating braces less painful?

The self-ligating clear braces are claimed by their makers to be less painful and faster in most cases than traditional metal braces. 

This is because self-ligating braces move your teeth gently without applying intense pressure on your teeth.

Is there any food I cannot eat while I have braces?

Generally, we do not have strict food restrictions as we hope our patients have a balanced diet. However, reducing intake of sticky and sugary foods is encouraged as they might cause caries or dislodge of the bracket.

How long does this orthodontist treatment take?

The length of orthodontic treatment can vary depending on the severity of the dental condition.

Most orthodontic treatments take between 1.5 - 3 years to complete, although some cases may take longer or shorter periods.

Will I need a retainer after removing my braces?

Yes, continuous wear of the retainer after your braces are removed is strongly recommended. 

Without a retainer, your teeth may start to shift back towards their original positions, which can undo the progress that was made during your orthodontic treatment.

Will wearing dental braces make it difficult to participate in sports?

Wearing dental braces should not necessarily make it difficult to participate in sports, but it is important to take some precautions to protect your braces and your mouth while playing sports.

It is important to wear a mouthguard for contact sports or any activity with a risk of getting hit in the mouth.
