Myofunctional therapy has four goals

  1. Correct tongue posture
  2. Nasal breathing –all day and night
  3. Lip seal–gently close lips together
  4. Correct swallowing pattern

Well being dentistry is offering myofunctional therapy which is a program that corrects the improper function of the tongue and facial muscles. It strengthens the tongue and orofacial muscles by teaching patients on how to properly engage the muscles to proper position. The therapy is highly effective exercises that improve breathing, bite, and orofacial posture.

Just as physical therapy can train our bodies to function properly after an injury, myofunctional therapy can train the facial tissues of the mouth, neck and face to function to their optimal potential. The goal of our program is to tailor exercises specifically to your needs. Both adults and children benefit from therapy.

Myotherapy may benefit patients who suffer from:

  • Headaches
  • TMJ pain
  • Neck pain
  • Thumb sucking
  • Nail biting
  • Tongue tie
  • Sleep apnea
  • Obstructive Breathing Disorders
