HOW THE K2 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 K2 provides arch development in addition to habit correction. It features Dynamicore™ with a Frankel Cage which assists in developing the arch form and improving the dental alignment. The K2 is available in three sizes and comes in pink, blue and clear.
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 child’s permanent teeth are coming through (ages 5 to 10) and is available in three sizes.
Directions for use
The K2 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 K2
The K2 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.
