Background: Bad habits are something that is common in children aged less than six years and can stop on their own (spontaneously). If these bad habits continue after the age of six years, it can cause malocclusion in children. In the world of pediatric dentistry, one of the treatments for malocclusion is Oral Myofunctional Therapy (OMT). One of the myofunctional tools that can be used to correct malocclusion as well as bad habits in children is the Myobrace Appliance. Myobrace is an intraoral device system used in interceptive orthodontics, designed for the treatment of malocclusion in pediatric patients. Aim: The purpose of this systematic review is to find and explore the management of malocclusion in children using the Myobrace Appliance. Methods: The data was collected by searching the literature on an article search site, namely Google Scholar, published from 2016 to 2020. The data search was carried out systematically using the keywords Malocclusion in Children and Myobrace Appliance. After eliminating duplicated articles, the titles and abstracts of each article were analyzed on 108 articles which resulted in the exclusion of 42 articles. The full-text articles in the remaining 9 articles were re-analyzed and excluded 3 articles and produced 6 articles which were then entered into the analysis. Result: There are 6 articles that discuss the management of malocclusion in children using the myobrace appliance. Conclusion:Myobrace appliance can be used as an alternative treatment for malocclusion in children, especially to correct class II malocclusion and class III malocclusion (mandibular prognathy and maxillary retrognathy). In addition, this tool is also capable of correcting overbite, overjet, crowding of upper and lower anterior teeth, sagittal molar relationships, lip seals, facial asymmetry.
