Helping Children Avoid Braces with Myobrace®

Nearly 3 out of 4 children experience alignment issues as their teeth and jawbones develop, leading to the need for orthodontic correction through the use of braces. Fortunately, such issues can become apparent early on, allowing Dr. Lawson to prescribe Myobrace® treatment to address the concern and improve your child’s oral growth and development. Unlike traditional orthodontic treatment, Myobrace® employs new early orthodontic treatment to help address the common underlying issues that lead to malocclusion (the misalignment of teeth and/or jawbones) using removable appliances rather than braces. Myobrace® reduces the need for extensive orthodontics in the future. With a focus on correcting myofunctional issues, the treatment can also help maintain an open airway for better sleep and help reduce the risks of obstructive sleep apnea for your child!

To find out if your child could benefit from Myobrace® myofunctional therapy, schedule a consultation with Dr. Lawson by calling Lawson Family Dentistry in Urbandale, IA, today at 515-278-4366.
