benefits of myofunctional therapy

Myofunctional Therapy is a painless therapy that is used to correct the improper function of the tongue and orofacial muscles through a series of relatively simple orofacial and tongue exercises. We use our orofacial muscles 24 hours a day 7 days a week, consciously and subconsciously. If there is improper function of any of these muscles, problems will develop leading to myofunctional disorders among others. Orofacial Myofunctional therapy: may aide in the treatment of sleep breathing disorders, promotes proper lip seal, facilitates proper nasal breathing, promotes a proper swallow, facilitates proper chewing, promotes lingual-palatal resting posture, may aide in the treatment of TMD and/or facial pain, may help with speech problems, aides in the elimination of noxious oral habits, aides in the correction of a tongue thrust, and aides in preventing orthodontic relapse.
