A closer look at myofunctional therapy

Is your child experiencing any of the following?
• Mouth breathing
• Persistent snoring
• Speech challenges
• Orthodontic issues
• Jaw pain
• Facial muscle imbalances

These symptoms could indicate underlying myofunctional issues. Talk to us about how myofunctional therapy can help.

Improve Breathing Patterns

Myofunctional therapy focuses on correcting improper breathing habits and promoting optimal nasal breathing. This can alleviate issues related to mouth breathing, snoring, and respiratory disorders, like sleep apnea.

Alleviate TMJ Disorders

Therapy includes exercises that target the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), potentially alleviating symptoms associated with TMJ disorders, such as jaw pain and discomfort.

Enhance Facial Muscle Function

The therapy targets the muscles of the face and mouth, reestablishing proper function. This can lead to improved facial aesthetics, enhanced muscle tone, clearer speech, and a more balanced appearance.

Support Overall Well-being

Beyond addressing specific oral concerns, myofunctional therapy improves overall well-being — from enhanced energy levels to reduced fatigue, and better quality of life.

How It Works

This therapy adapts to your myofunctional needs. We tell most patients to plan for 12-18 personalized sessions (exercises), either in-person or through the convenience of telehealth. With telehealth, you can easily connect with your doctor through video calls or online from the comfort of your home.
