It has been suspected that malformations in the craniofacial structure of individuals result in various defects of the respiratory system. Airway obstruction is known to be one of the results of these malformations, and it leads to sleeping disorders, such as sleep apnea and chronic mouth breathing.
However, research has also shown that airway obstruction is not only a result of craniofacial disorders and malocclusion, but it can be a cause of these problems. Thus, there is a vicious cycle where airway obstruction leads to malformations and malformations also lead to airway obstruction and its consequences.
To solve both problems holistically, they have to be tackled concurrently. In order to prevent the health ramifications of craniofacial malformation and airway obstruction, dental appliances have to be used to correct malformations, but at the same time, habits and issues of sleep apnea and mouth breathing also need to be addressed.
Myobrace orthodontics works in this way to achieve optimal results. It works by simultaneously correcting myofunctional habits and correcting malocclusions and other disorders. Myobrace uses advanced techniques, which encourage non-extraction methods to correct habits and malformations. Again, Myobrace orthodontics helps to achieve the correct shape and length of dental arches through techniques, which produce faster and long-lasting results in especially difficult cases.
The dual benefits of Myobrace—correcting wrong myofunctional habits and correcting malocclusions—ensures that recurrence is limited, and results can be achieved at an early age.
At Golden Dental, we strive to provide an encouraging environment where a well-motivated and compliant client on Myobrace orthodontics will be provided with excellent results, irrespective of age.
