What is Myobrace?

Myobrace treatment is a combination of exercises (breathing, lips, tongue position), correcting poor oral habits and use of a removable plate.

This can help your child with:
  • Aligning and developing the jaw
  • Optimising facial development
  • Correcting poor oral habits (eg: mouth breathing, thumb sucking)
  • Promoting healthy eating habits
  • Improving overall health
  • Straightens teeth (the happy side effect!)


How can Myobrace help with my child's everyday life?

Myobrace is a removable device and when combined with the right exercises, can do more than just straighten your child's teeth. It's proven treatment that is designed to help train your child in their everyday life to:
  • Breathe through their nose
  • Swallow correctly
  • Keep their tongue in the correct resting position at the top of the mouth
  • Keep their lips closed
Forward-thinking parents know that you shouldn't wait until a child's adult teeth come out to get orthodontic treatment. Because, by that stage there has been irreversible damage that can lead to painful and expensive surgery and teeth extractions.

What happens if you don't get your child's crooked teeth checked now?

If the cause of the crooked teeth is not fixed early, placing braces on those teeth could be like rearranging deck chairs on the titanic - sure, they will probably look straight, but their could be a greater chance of relapse.

If your child's breathing isn’t corrected early they are more likely to suffer from:
  • Poor eating habits where they become fussy eaters
  • Sleep deprivation or even sleep apnoea
  • Being forced to have surgery to fix issues that could be corrected now
Intervening earlier with Myobrace can help with facial and jaw development. If braces are still needed, the results are usually quicker as the underlying cause has been addressed.

How long does Myobrace treatment take to show results?

This is mainly dependant on your child. If they wear the Myobrace daily for at least an hour, as well as overnight, doing their exercises properly then we find treatment can be fairly quick.

Common sense dictates that without compliance, your child's results will be slower. Typically we give 12-24 months for treatment to complete (depending on the age and problem that we are trying to solve). This example proves just how quickly Myobrace treatments can start showing results:

Initial crowding 9 yrs old

6 months into treatment

How much does Myobrace cost?

This is very case dependent, but typically treatment can vary from $500-$2500 based on the state of your child's mouth and the movement that is required to treat their issues.

By any comparison, Myobrace treatment is significantly more cost-effective than getting traditional orthodontic braces for your child.

Is Myobrace covered by health insurance?

Give Your Child The Best Start In Life
It's best to check with your health insurance company. Even if Myobrace treatment is not covered by your private health insurance policy and you have to pay for it out-of-pocket, you may still be thousands of dollars better off by investing in Myrobrace for your child and minimising the need for braces.

The reason for this is that Myobrace is a pre-orthodontic treatment, which means that it can significantly reduce, if not eliminate, the need and scope of orthodontic treatment later. In short, if less Orthodontic work is required later on then those savings will probably outweigh anything you have to spend on Myobrace treatments now.

This is especially true because most health funds cap the amount you claim for orthodontic braces to approximately $2000. Check out some of these examples where we assume that your child may still require some orthodontic treatment:

Consider this example WITH Myobrace treatment:
Myobrace Treatment Cost: $2000
Reduced Orthodontic Braces Cost: $2500
Health Fund Rebate For Braces: $2000
Total Out Of Pocket Expense For You: $2500

Now, consider this example WITHOUT Myobrace treatment:
Myobrace Treatment Cost: $0
Orthodontic Braces Cost: $6500
Health Fund Rebate For Braces: $2000
Total Out Of Pocket Expense For You: $4500


These numbers prove that if your child has overcrowding in their mouth or crooked teeth, booking a Myobrace consultation with our dentists is a no-brainer. Remember, these numbers are only indicative and may be different depending on the needs of your child, but you can rest assured that we will give you all the information you need to make an informed decision.

Getting started with Myobrace

  1. Consultation: this is where we get to know you, your child and pick up on any oral habits and try and work out the cause of crooked teeth or poor oral habits. The provisional diagnosis is made and treatment options are discussed
  2. Records: this appointment we take photos, moulds of the teeth and work out which appliance is best and starting on the exercises- depending on the appliance, you may receive it at this appointment, or we may need to order it in.
  3. Follow ups: in each follow up appointment, we ask for you to bring our workbook, we check on the exercises, do some measurements and document the progress, making any changes depending on the situation
