Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) Therapy is a unique exercise program that reeducates the facial muscles by modifying the swallowing patterns, tongue and lip postures. It eliminates negative oral facial habits to produce nasal breathing and closed mouth posture.

Unless recognized and changed, our habits will continue throughout life.

Every day we consciously and unconsciously use the muscles of our face and mouth. Like any habit, some habits are good, however, some habits over time can negatively effect our facial muscles. Incorrect or poor habits are often learned at a very early age and carry into adulthood.  Some bad habits include  biting your fingernails, clenching you jaw or even poor posture.

Myofunctional Therapy

Justin was able to get amazing results for his smile without the use of braces or other appliances. 

Initial Visit – Justin came to me with tongue tie and lip tie. He also had Class III malocclusion also known as protruding jaw which. Although Justin mostly breathed through his nose during the day, at night he was snoring, drooling and bruxing. We needed to eliminate his habits of lip licking, nail biting and pinky sucking.  Due to restless sleeping at night, it was affecting his productivity and activities in school.   

After 8 months of myofunctional therapy, he had frenectomies performed on his lip and tongue. Justin came in for his 5-day follow-up session. He had a fully, normal bite. No braces. No appliance. We were able to reclassify him as Class 1 Occlusion.  

Tongue-tie

Justin had Class III malocculusion, tongue tied and labial tie. 

Frenectomy

Lingual and maxillary frenectomies were performed.

Assess your Facial Resting Posture and Swallow

While dentistry/orthodontics has a primary focus on dental occlusion, or teeth-together relationships, orofacial myologists focus on teeth-apart behaviors and postures that can lead to or have already resulted in misalignment of teeth or other facial muscle imbalances.

With Oral Facial Health Care, you can reduce the occurrence of discomfort associated with migraine pressure tension headaches, jaw or neck pain or other painful symptoms of OMD. 

We offer a 10-point evaluation and customized therapies based on holistic, natural healing methods.
