Learn About The Appliances
So you’ve seen how myofunctional orthodontics works with some of the patients that we treat in the practice. Let's show you the appliance systems and the fundamentals of using them in your practice.
Many of the original functional appliances had both good and bad characteristics. One of the biggest issues was that they weren’t really correcting function - some appliance designs even lessened the space for the tongue to sit in the maxilla.
MRC’s Trainer and Myobrace® Systems were designed to address this key limitation with existing functional appliances. By encouraging the tongue to position properly in the maxilla MRC’s appliances correct function while also aligning the teeth.
One of the key principles of myofunctional orthodontics is to ensure that the patient’s tongue is positioned correctly in their maxilla.
