What is Orofacial Myology?

Orofacial myology might sound like a bit of a mouthful at first. The most basic way to explain it is that, ‘orofacial’ refers to the face and mouth region while the word ‘myology’ is the area of study  that’s focused on muscles and how they work. Oralmyology refers to the type healthcare that focuses specifically on the treatment of problems associated with the face, jaw and mouth by working with patients’ muscles to build symmetry and balance for lifelong healthy posture.
