ESIGN CHARACTERISTICS OF THE LIP TRAINER™
Lip bumper - discourages the strong overactive musculature in the mentalis area that Class II malocclusion cases typically have.
Strap-Tether - exercises the oral muscles.
Ideally shaped - to match the obicularis-oris (muscles aorund the mouth).
HOW THE LIP TRAINER™ WORKS
Bad myofunctional habits such as incorrect tongue position and function plus mouth breathing are often the cause of misaligned teeth and poor jaw development. If left untreated, myofunctional habits such as mouth breathing, incorrect swallow and tongue thrusting will be detrimental to correct facial development and any future orthodontics.
The Lip Trainer™ can be used in combination with MRC's appliances for five minutes twice each day. It improves lip seal and strengthens and stretches the lower lip muscles to reduce their overactivity when swallowing.
All appliances in the Trainer System™ are designed to re-train the oral musculature (the Myofunctional Effect™). This assists in the correction of tooth and jaw alignment.
Some children may show signs of lip incompetence or poor muscle tone around the lips (Orbicularis oris muscle). This problem can persist despite correct use of the Trainer and Myobrace® appliances. The Lip Trainer™ can be used for patients of any age, in combination with any appliance from the Trainer or Myobrace® Systems. It is particularly useful for mouth breathers who have difficulty closing their mouth. Recommended daily use is 5 minutes twice daily.
Cleaning the Lip Trainer™
The Lip Trainer™ should be cleaned under warm running water every time the patient removes it from their mouth. UseMyoclean™ tablets to correctly clean twice a week. Myoclean™ is the recommended cleaning agent for MRC's appliances.
