MYOBRACE for KIDS – Straighten Teeth, The Natural Way

Myobrace is an orthodontic treatment ​approach to correct disharmonious oral muscle function and thereby prevent or correct developing mal alignments of teeth and jaws in young children.

3 out of every 4 children have crowded teeth and incorrectly developing jaws. These problems are evident from as early as 4 years of age.

Abnormal muscular pressures can influence teeth position and dental arch stability. Studies indicate that the position of the teeth is determined by the pressure from the lips, tongue and childhood habits.

Modern research has shown that a number of poor childhood habits (incorrect myofunctional habits) can cause incorrect jaw development, crowded teeth and other orthodontic problems.

These habits of children include:

Thumb or finger sucking
Sucking on a pacifier/ feeding bottle
Sucking on the lip
Mouth breathing (often caused by enlarged adenoids and tonsils)
Fingernail biting
Thrusting the tongue against teeth
If these habits are not corrected at an early age, it leads to deformative growth of the jaws and severe mal alignment of teeth. ​

Myobrace treatment addresses these incorrect ​myofunctional habits in children. Improving these poor myofunctional habits at an early age allows for your child to have good dental alignment and improved jaw growth. The key is to target the underlying causes of crooked teeth as soon as the problems become evident at an early age and while the child’s biological adaptability is at their peak.

Based on over 20 years of research and currently used by patients in over 100 countries, early or interceptive orthodontics with myobrace reduces and often avoids the need for future treatment with dental braces by laying the foundation for correct ​jaw bone growth and creating the necessary amount of space for teeth early on.

How Does Myobrace Treatment Work?
Myobrace treatment involves using a series of appliances which have the proven dual function of correcting habits that cause poor dental development, while also providing light forces to align the teeth into their natural position​.

Wearing a Myobrace appliance for 1 to 2 hours each day and overnight while sleeping, combined with a series of ‘myofunctional exercises’ (Trainer Activities) each day is all it takes for the real change to occur.

What Other Benefits Might I See From Using This Treatment?
Myobrace treatment is not just to have straight front teeth, but also to remove the bad influences on the patients dental and facial development. In children, as a result of improving poor muscular habits patients can experience better facial development and achieve their full genetic potential. Other health benefits of Myobrace treatment methods include improved posture, fewer allergies, and fewer problems with the teeth, mouth and jaw joints (TMJ).

What Is The Best Age To Begin Treatment For Your Child?
The optimum time to begin treatment is when the patient is still growing and the first permanent teeth appear(at around 6-10 years of age).

Vanquish Your Fear with Sedation Dentistry – A Safe, Effective Dental Solution

If you’re afraid of the dentist, you’re not alone. But did you know there’s a way of conquering the fears that may have kept you from visiting your dentist for necessary treatment? Using the techniques of sedation dentistry, your dentist can ease your apprehension, and even make the entire experience pain-free.

What exactly is IV Sedation Dentistry?

At Dr Joy Dental Clinic, we have two IV Sedation Dentists available for performing IV Sedation Dentistry right at our convenient location at Jumeirah & Umm Sequim branch.  IV Sedation is a very safe and effective method of sedation that is also referred to as deep conscious sedation or relaxation dentistry.

It is a form of moderate sedation where the patient receives the sedative drug directly through a vein, so it goes to work very quickly.  It allows the dentist to continually adjust the level of sedation, allowing unprecedented control over the relaxation levels, combined with a profound amnesia.  Depending on the amount of sedative you receive, you will feel extremely relaxed, drowsy, or you may fall asleep completely.  This type of sedation requires a responsible adult to drive the patient to and from their appointment, and spend some time with them afterwards until the sedative wears off completely.  In addition to the IV Sedation, the doctors at Dr Joy Dental Clinic will typically also use a local anesthetic, or numbing medication at the site to eliminate or alleviate pain of the procedure may cause any discomfort.  Because the patient is in an extreme state of relaxation, it is possible for the dentist to achieve year worth of dental work in a single visit.

While pediatric dentistry has made great strides in making young patients’ dental visit experiences more relaxing, some children and teenagers still have difficulty with anxiety. Their anxiety in turn can make necessary care much harder to provide.

For difficult cases, many dental providers for children now incorporate a technique known as conscious sedation to help ease anxiety. With this technique, they’re able to perform procedures like cavity-filling or tooth-extraction that are more difficult with an anxiety-prone patient.

While general anesthesia creates a total loss of consciousness, conscious sedation uses precise medications to suppress consciousness at different levels ranging from light to deep suppression, and create a relaxed state for the patient.

Conscious sedation is becoming a more widespread technique in both medicine and dentistry. Using it to ease a child’s anxiety increases the chances they’ll receive all the dental care they need without unpleasant memories of their visit that could follow them into later life.

At Dr Joy Dental Clinic our Pediatric facility is the ONLY DENTAL CENTER IN DUBAI offering:

  • In-house IV Sedation supervised by a General Anesthetist from UK.
  • Specialist Pediatric Dentists, highly qualified and experienced.
  • Nitrous Oxide Sedation
  • Laser Dentistry for painless treatment

Sedation dentistry has worked very safely and perfectly for many patients who used to be apprehensive about going to the dentist. It is a safe, effective and comfortable way to overcome the most intense dental anxiety almost instantaneously and allow you to get the excellent dental care you deserve and need.

At Dr Joy Dental Clinic you will never be judged, and we are happy to offer a consultation so we can discuss the options available and help you or your loved one be on the road to restore dental health.

At Dr Joy Dental Clinic we are able to perform IV (intravenous sedation) Sedation Dentistry right in the comfort of our Pediatric and orthodontic Center located on Al Wasl Road.

Wand: Painless Anesthesia

The revolutionary new computer controlled local anesthesia injections system that conquers fear, pain and anxiety.

For many of you who are scared of needles and the associated pain, the Wand is the latest computerized controlled anesthetic delivery system in dentistry.

Advances in technology are significantly enhancing patient comfort both during and after dental treatment.  One of these technologies is the single tooth anesthesia (STA) system for giving dental injections. Many patients are not even aware that the injection has been given.  Patients leave the office without the numbness in their cheek, tongue, or lip that often accompanied traditional syringe injections.  At Dr Joy Dental Clinic, we use this STA system and other technologies to enhance your comfort and eliminate the stress associated with going to the dentist.

So Fear Not!
The WAND is a computer-controlled local anesthesia delivery system.
It doesn’t look like a syringe.
It doesn’t hurt like a syringe.
And it works better than a syringe.

How the STA system works
Wand hand-piece is a computer-controlled dental injection system. The flow rate of the local anesthetic is controlled by a computer. This means that the injection is guaranteed to be slow and steady and therefore comfortable. It means less discomfort for you as most of the sting from a traditional dental injection comes from the anesthesia solution being delivered too quickly.

The STA system base unit looks like a computer modem and the Wand hand-piece looks like a pen with a small needle at the tip.

With the aid of state-of-the-art technology, the Wand delivers exactly the anesthetic you need at exactly the right rate make your visit as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible. Hence, a more pleasant dental experience.

The WAND is an excellent example of our efforts to bring you the latest dental technology, and to help all of our patients have a pleasant, positive visit to our clinic. Feel free to ask us if you’d like to know more about this remarkable new system.

Dental Hygiene linked to happy love life

If you are not happy with your bedroom life, check your dental hygiene.

Teeth stand witness to your happy love life, says a study, suggesting that individuals who are in a trusting, secure and loving relationship may have good oral health compared to those in a bad one.

People in love paid extra attention to their appearance, including dental health. “We were surprised how greatly romantic relationships really did play a big part,” Grace Branjerdporn from University of Queensland in Australia, was quoted as saying to abc.net.au.

Those who were emotionally detached from their partners appeared reluctant to schedule regular preventative dental appointments, the researchers said.

“The study discovered that those who try to avoid emotional intimacy, or are worried their partner would leave in times of need, were more likely to have negative oral health,” Branjerdporn added. “They also have higher levels of self-reliance, distrust others and avoid seeking support,” she said.

“On the brighter side, those in a love life, who trust the other person and have higher self-worth lead to better dentist visiting habits,” Branjerdporn observed.

For the study, published in the journal of Quality of Life Research, the team analyzed a group of 265 people, mainly in their early 30s with healthy lifestyles.
