Why Learn Myofunctional Orthodontics?
With advances in research, and years of combined clinical experience, dentists are now at the forefront of treatment of a number of disorders of facial growth including sleep disordered breathing, and malocclusion. Thanks to the many pioneers that have come before us, the modern dentist is now free to lead the way in contemporary preventive medicine. A career in dentistry can now be one of the most rewarding careers of our time. Improved facial growth and muscle function leads to better sleep. Research is now clear that great sleep is essential for a thriving, and healthy child. Straighter teeth are a happy bonus from improved function.
Why The Myofocus Orthodontic System?
The Myofocus Orthodontic System is a unique combination of all of the best bits from a number of systems, philosophies and appliances. We do not sell appliances and so have no allegiance to doing things one way or the other. We have drawn upon many years of combined experience of treating malocclusion in growing children. We have learned from a variety of settings, including small and large general practices; as well as purpose built Pre-Orthodontic Myobrace Centres.
We have used all of the popular systems and know what works well – and that’s our focus. The addition of techniques and concepts to improve compliance is the icing on the cake. The result is better function and superior results.
What Is The Myofocus Orthodontic System?
The Myofocus Orthodontic System combines the best from all of the major myofunctional techniques and appliances, including MyoMunchee, Myobrace, and Oral Myofunctional Therapy. Furthermore, it uses philosophies and treatments from Biobloc Orthotropics and Functional Jaw Orthopaedics to deliver a complete appliance system, for the growing child.
The application of breathing techniques used by elite athletes to improve nasal airflow, as well as nutritional science to reduce inflammation assists with appliance use; and the incorporation of manual therapy to assist with cranial strains, and calisthenic exercises to improve core strength leads to improved posture and superior results.
