Machoukid is a flexible and comfortable splint.
he Machoukid splint works by allowing the child:
– to reposition their jaws,
– to improve their nasal breathing
– to acquire good swallowing skills
– to widen the palate in order to give full space to the permanent teeth.
The use of MACHOUKID can be part of overall care (speech therapy, osteopathy, chiropractic, dental surgery, orthodontics, etc.).
Nowadays, too soft a diet, prolonged sucking, stress, etc. are all factors that lead to medical consultations in adolescence.

Machoukid will straighten my teeth?
With its standard shape and oral plan, Machoukid helps your teeth balance by protecting them from the forward thrust of your tongue . This will be re-educated in the high position. With each swallow, the tongue spreads in contact with the molars, promoting the expansion of the palate. The smooth surface of the MachouKid allows your teeth to move, which is called natural tooth alignment.
