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

Awesome experience for my son. This is our very first dentist for my 5 year old and they providing excellent services. My son is very comfortable and excited to go and visit Jupiter kids dentistry. We are glad that we found the amazing dentist place for my kids. Staff and Dr's are excellent knowledgable. Thank you.
Jupiter Kids is a one of a kind pediatric dental office. Dr.Taiym has seen my kids for years. Very professional, welcoming, and knowledgable. Dr.Kamali is a sweetheart and you can tell she cares about her patients. Best place in the Dallas area if you are looking for a place for your kids.
Today was our first visit and I am so impressed. At our previous dentist office I felt like a number, moving through the system. Even though we had been there for years, they still call my son by his legal name which, he does not go by. When we walked in the door at Jupiter, the receptionist said “you must be____” and immediately called him by the name he goes by. We were given a quick tour of the office and I was even able to meet with Dr. Kamali, before we even began, in order to express any concerns or questions I may have. Meanwhile my son met and was Xrayed by Megan, the incredible dental hygienist. She took the time to explain everything to him before she did it, which helped with his nervous energy for sure. Overall, such a great experience. I couldn’t recommend this dental practice enough to other parents looking for an overall experience.
Beware of the suggested myobraces they promote. The device used after braces was a nightmare. Now we have to get braces again which means we have to pay AGAIN. Also, when my kiddo had to have a tooth pulled, they didn't give him the correct amount of anesthetic and he screamed and cried while the tooth was pulled. I nearly fainted. I felt like such a horrible parent for allowing this to occur. I had no clue that the dr. would continue a procedure even when a person was screaming. We both suffered trauma from this. We don't go there anymore. I really liked Dr. Elizabeth Kamali, but Dr. Sal Taiym seemed to be less professional and didn't listen to us. My comment is our family's experience. I hope that, if you choose to go here, you have a better story to tell. Every dr. treats each patient differently. Apparently, we had stupid written on our faces and cha-ching in our wallets. Very disappointed.
We found Jupiter Kids Dentistry after moving to Allen from Houston, and we couldn’t be happier. They are so caring and make sure the kids feel comfortable. We’ve seen them for emergency visits and routine check-ups, I won’t take our kids anywhere else.
