The Myobrace® System
After identifying the causes of underdeveloped jaws and crooked teeth, the myofunctional habits have to be treated. Myobrace® focuses on addressing these underlying causes by getting the children to breathe through their nose, keep their lips together and placing their tongue in the roof of the mouth so the jaws can grow to their proper and full size. This allows enough space for the teeth and usually the teeth naturally come in straight without needing braces. Treatment is best suited to children aged 5 to 15 and involves using a series of removable intra-oral appliances that are worn for 1-2 hours each day plus overnight while sleeping. There are four stages of treatment with Myobrace® involving habit correction, arch expansion, dental alignment and then retention
MYOBRACE® - EARLY ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT FOR CHILDREN AGED 5 TO 15
Waiting until all permanent teeth have come through to begin treatment with braces can unfortunately lead to irreversible damage affecting not only the teeth, but also the child’s overall health and development. Poor myofunctional habits (poor oral habits) are evident before all permanent teeth are present, which means treatment of the causes can begin much earlier than originally thought. This can be as early as three years of age.Developed by Myofunctional Research Co. (MRC), Myobrace® provides treatment options that address the underlying causes of crooked teeth before all the permanent teeth have emerged and without braces or extractions, unlocking healthy growth and development.Suitable for a wide variety of orthodontic concerns, Myobrace® treatment offers a range of solutions for children aged 5 to 15, and is most effective in early childhood development stages from ages 6 to 10.
How It Works
Myobrace® treatment works by focusing on correcting the poor oral habits which are the underlying causes of orthodontic problems. Treatment involes the use of a series of removable oral appliances in conjunction with the patient education program, which assists in correcting poor oral habits by training the tongue to sit correctly in the roof of the mouth, teaching correct swallowing patterns and instructing children to breathe through their nose. The effect produces not only straighter teeth and well-developed jaws, but also improves facial development as well as reducing the need for braces and extractions
The Myobrace® appliances must be worn for 1-2 hours every day plus overnight sleeping to be effective. In addition, the patient education program known as Myobrace® Activities are used to further correct the myofunctional habits causing the incorrect dental and jaw development.There are four stages of treatment with Myobrace® involving habit correction, arch expansion, dental alignment and retention. The appliances assist in correcting poor oral habits and expand the arch-form while exerting light forces to align the teeth and jaws

Just took my 2 kids (age 2 and 4) to Jupiter Kids Dentistry. We had a wonderful experience and were very impressed with Dr. Kamali. The kids had a great time, im just happy the practice is so kid friendly, from front end staff to the doctor, we received a warm welcome. A great start to building a routine for the kids and getting them used to good teeth hygiene and cleanings.
Jupiter kids dentistry is AMAZING! Everyone there from the front desk to your encounter with the dentist and hygienist are skilled, professional, and caring. Dr. Kamali is an excellent dentist that communicates well with her patients and treats patients with care and precision. She informed me of details step by step as she was examining my child’s teeth. Her assistant and hygienists are excellent as well and never seem to rush you. Everyone in the office is very caring and professional. I am so grateful for their services.
Jupiter Dentistry is amazing! Dr. Kamali and Dr. Paradiso are both so gentle and calm with their patients. We can’t thank Dr. Kamali enough for pointing out my daughters enlarged tonsils and suggesting we see an ENT. She caught a problem we had no idea about that sent us down a rabbit hole of why our daughter was dealing with so many other problems(GI issues for 3 years, speech delay, mouth breathing and restless sleep). We had the removal surgery and ever since then, all of her problems have resolved! We were in shock that something so small could make such a huge change in our daughters health and well being. This is all thanks to Dr.Kamali for catching something that even our own pediatrician hadn’t caught. We can’t thank her enough.
It was my daughter's first dental visit and the staff was professional. This location was the first person to get back with me after all my inquiries at places. So they are quick to reply!! Would recommend.
Thank you to Jupiter Kids, they took amazing care of my daughters. The Drs. are so sweet and kind. They explained the treatment in detail and made sure my daughters were comfortable before starting. I highly recommend any parent over to Jupiter kids if you looking for a Pediatric Dentist. The service here is top tier in every capacity. It’s a blessing to have found them! I’m a forever patient.
