Myofunctional therapy is a field of study dedicated to the treatment of Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMDs), or the dysfunction of the muscles of the mouth and face characterized by any atypical pattern that interferes with normal growth, development and function of the facial and mouth muscles used to speak, chew and swallow. If left untreated, it may directly or indirectly affect: breastfeeding, facial skeletal growth and development, chewing, swallowing, speech, occlusion, TMJ movement, oral hygiene, stability of orthodontic treatment, facial esthetics, and more.
Our therapy program is individualized as we focus on our patient's need to improve tongue position, oral rest posture and nasal breathing.Of all existing treatment options, Myofunctional therapy is the least invasive. In many cases, all we're talking about is performing simple exercises for a few minutes a day. The exercises are relatively simple and absolutely fun and effective!!
Our treatments have helped patients improve so many aspects of daily life, including breathing, eating, speaking, and sleep.
