Lip Seal Trainer - LST
Improvement of lip strength and lip seal
The LST appliance focuses on strengthening the lips which assists with establishing a habitual lip seal. The LST also attaches to the Lip Trainer™ appliance, allowing it to be pulled in various directions for peri-oral muscle training. It can also serve as a standalone appliance to improve lip strength and seal through the use of the lip seal spade or training board feature (depending on desired difficulty). The Lip Trainer™ appliance is used with all of MRC's treatment systems but can also be used on its own by practitioners offering myofunctional therapy.
Directions for Use
The LST appliance should be held between the lips for 10 minutes while wearing the Myobrace®, then for 2 minutes, twice a day, without the Myobrace® in the mouth, to gain the full benefits of its exercising features. This usage can be increased in duration depending on instructions from the practitioner.
Step 1 (while wearing an appliance)
Place the LST between the lips touching the Myobrace® or Myosa® appliance in your mouth, then lightly close the lips enough to hold it in place. Continue this for 10 minutes while wearing your appliance.
Step 2 (as a standalone exercise)
Remove the Myobrace® or Myosa® appliance and use the LST on its own for another two (2) minutes, either with the lip seal spade or training board between the lips.
Cleaning the LST
The Myotalea® appliance should be cleaned under warm running water every time the patient removes it from their mouth.
Use Myoclean™ tablets to thoroughly clean twice a week. Myoclean™ is the recommended cleaning agent for all MRC appliances.
