Dr. Paul Rocke has introduced the Myobrace System™ in his Littleton Orthodontic practice. It is a system from Australia based on over 20 years of experience in correcting orthodontic/orthopedic problems. The Myobrace appliances which make up this system have the proven dual function of correcting the oral habits that cause poor dental development (known as myofunctional habits), while also providing light forces to align the teeth into their natural position. This technique is now used by Dr. Paul Rocke in the southwest Denver area including Highlands Ranch, Littleton and Centennial.and Orthodontists. He is one of few in the metro area using this technology.
These appliances are designed to be used in-sequence to effectively train the tongue to position correctly in the upper jaw, retrain the oral musculature and exert light forces to align the teeth. Wearing a Myobrace appliance for one to two hours each day and overnight while sleeping, combined with a series of 'myofunctional exercises' (also known as the Trainer Activities) each day is all that is required in the treatment process. Fixed braces are required for a short time to provide optimal alignment.
The Myobrace System differs from other orthodontic forms of treatment as it is not only aimed at straightening the teeth, but is primarily directed at correcting the causes of crooked teeth and underdeveloped jaws. Dr. Rocke knows Myobrace is best for patients who are still growing, around the ages of six to ten. But is also available for adults as this effective treatment can be done outside of these ages, recognizing habits become harder to correct in older patients.
