Myofunctional treatment of vertical canine disocclusion


The results of the present study demonstrate high efficacy of myofunctional trainers applied for the purpose of dentoalveolar reconstruction, compensatory growth of the jaws and their apical bases, normalization of longitudinal and transverse dimensions of dentitions, their shape, the tilt and position of the front teeth. Analysis of the outcomes of the treatment confirmed the improvement of the main characteristics being estimated and gave evidence of the correction of disbalance between masticatory muscles that was apparent in the pretreatment period.
