Most kids are first screened by an orthodontist at age 7, and treatment usually doesn’t start until age 12. With the help of recent research, dentistry professionals now understand that this waiting period creates missed opportunity for simple corrections.
Early treatment allows us to use Myobrace® dental technology to maximize the opportunity for healthy facial growth. Dr. Pavlenko believes that many children treated with Myobrace® dentistry appliances will not need braces in their teens.
Myobrace® technology eliminates mouth-breathing and snoring by developing your child’s airway. Allowing your child’s jaws to be fully forward creates competent, strong airways while supporting proper body posture. These factors allow for restful sleep and promote the development of aesthetically pleasing facial features.
