HOW THE K3 WORKS
The Myobrace for Kids is a three-stage appliance system designed specifically to correct poor oral habits while treating upper and lower jaw development problems. The K3 is the third and final appliance in the Myobrace for Kids system and provides final alignment and retention.
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, retrain oral musculature and exert light forces to align the teeth.
The Myobrace for Kids is most effective when a childs permanent teeth are coming through (ages 5 to 12) and is available in three sizes.
Directions for use
The K3 must be worn for 1 hour each day and overnight while sleeping and always remember to follow these few simple steps:
Lips together - at all times except when speaking.
Breathe through the nose - to assist the development of the upper and lower jaws, and to achieve the correct bite.
No lip activity when swallowing - which allows the front teeth to develop correctly.
Cleaning the Myobrace K3
The K3 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.
