Trainer appliance for mixed dentition

Mixed Dentition

The TRAINER System™: This system was incorporated into a myofunctional therapy, which was designed as a tooth alignment into a single size easy use appliance. This appliance is designed to retrain, the mode of the tongue and the peri-oral muscles of the mouth,it also helps in correcting breathing habits and align the anterior dentition. Mixed dentition greatly helps with both dental and facial development.

The T4K® (Pre-Orthodontic TRAINER™): This is very effective in earl dentition, in the correction of myofunctional habits, and also tooth eruption guidance. Tooth Channels and Labial Bows guide the developing dentition into correct alignment, while the Tongue Tag and Lip Bumpers treat myofunctional habits.

Ideal for the development of teeth and jaws in ages 2-5.

We had added the infant trainer to our Myofunctional training systems. These trainers are designed, for children to chew properly , and develop proper jaw muscles. The child needs to wear them at least for 10-20 minutes twice a day, these infant trainers also aid in correction on mouth breathers, as well as guide proper tongue position. In case the trainer falls off a strap is attached to the clothing, so that it will prevent the trainer from falling on the floor. It fits toddlers from ages 2-5 years old, blue trainer for the boy and pink for the girl.

How the Infant Trainer™ Soft works

The Infant Trainer™

The infant trainer helps the child to breathe to their nose, and it also trains them to swallow & position their tongue correctly. Correct facial jaw, and dental growth depends on all these factors. With the help of Infant Trainer, this prevents the need of orthodontic treatment like, braces and extractions once the patient grows older.
