Does your child suck their thumb, mouth breathe, or reverse swallow?
These habits can be caused by incorrect jaw development. Did you know that 3 out of 4 children have crowded teeth in the mouth?
Having a crowded mouth can impact on many aspects of the developing jaw. Most people do not think about jaw development until children are in their teens and need braces to correct teeth overcrowding.
However, we can access a child’s jaw and see developing problems as young as 4 years old. Research has shown that the optimal age for the use of the Myobrace is 6 – 10 years of age with the possibility of a combined treatment with arch development and expansion. Made from flexible silicone, it is used to adapt to any arch-form and poorly-aligned teeth.
It can even be used at night! Is it time you checked your child’s jaw?
