Embrace the Future of Orthodontics with Smile Perfection's Myofunctional Braces

What Is Myofunctional Orthodontics Therapy?

Myofunctional Orthodontics is a progressive approach to orthodontic treatment that addresses the underlying causes of crooked teeth and poor jaw development, often related to dysfunctional muscle patterns. Unlike traditional braces that mechanically straighten teeth, Myofunctional Orthodontics focuses on retraining the oral and facial muscles. This therapy uses a series of exercises and removable dental appliances tailored to each patient’s specific needs.

The Benefits of Myofunctional Orthodontics

  • Non-Invasive and Comfortable: One of the most significant advantages of Myofunctional Orthodontics is its non-invasive nature. The exercises and appliances used are designed for comfort, making them particularly suitable for children and adults who may be apprehensive about traditional braces.
  • Addresses a Range of Issues: This therapy is not just about straightening teeth; it’s about promoting overall oral health. It can effectively address issues such as mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, and incorrect jaw positioning. By doing so, it lays the foundation for a healthier oral environment.
  • Helps with Sleep Disorders: Myofunctional Orthodontics has shown promising results in helping patients with certain sleep disorders. By improving muscle function and airway space in the oral cavity, patients often experience better breathing patterns during sleep, which can alleviate symptoms of sleep disorders like snoring and mild sleep apnea.
  • Promotes Long-Term Stability: By targeting the root causes of orthodontic problems, Myofunctional Orthodontics aims to provide long-term stability. The focus on muscle retraining helps in maintaining the results, reducing the likelihood of relapse after treatment.

Myofunctional Therapy and Vivos Appliances for Younger Patients

For our younger patients and those in mixed dentition stages, we integrate Myofunctional therapy using appliances from Vivos. These innovative devices are instrumental in correcting jaw growth and alignment issues early on, paving the way for a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing dental structure in the future.

Our Myofunctional therapy is designed to address specific needs in younger patients, ensuring that their jaw and teeth development is on the right track. The use of Vivos appliances in this therapy plays a crucial role in guiding the growth of the jaws, helping to prevent more significant orthodontic issues later in life.

By combining state-of-the-art clear aligner technology with advanced Myofunctional therapy, we offer a comprehensive and holistic approach to orthodontics. Our goal is to provide effective, patient-centered solutions that cater to both aesthetic desires and essential dental health needs.

Ideal Candidates for Myofunctional Orthodontics

This therapy is beneficial for patients of all ages but is particularly effective in children between the ages of 5 and 15, as it harnesses the body’s natural growth processes. However, adults can also see significant improvements in dental alignment and oral function with this therapy.
