Full therapy Program
Most of my patients have many OMDs that are a combination of breathing, oral posture and chewing and swallowing patterns as well as various parafunctional habits. Full therapy is an all inclusive one-on-one therapy program that is individualized for each patients needs.
Myofunctional treatment includes muscle re-education and exercises to correct muscle patterns for better balance and relief from pain. The program is designed to take place in 5 phases over a set period of time to ensure permanence. The amount of sessions depends on the complexity of case and the compliance of the patient.
- Increases confidence and self-esteem
- Establishes proper Facial Development through muscle memory, toning and mobility exercises
- Attain full body alignment and restore balance.
- Provides relief from oral facial pain, bruxism or TMJD.
- Improve disorders such as swallowing or digestive or sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea, ADHD and ADD.
SMYO Kits contain everything that will be used for the sessions (not included in price) including tools for taking accurate measurements and getting to know your SPOT (getting your lips and tongue into the correct positions)
The program works to engage your muscles in promoting strength and toning.
Pre- and Post-Op Frenectomy add on
A Frenectomy procedure address issues of a condition known as tongue-tie or lip-tie which cause restrictions to mobility of the mouth’s normal movements. In infants this can cause problems with breastfeeding and palatal development.
In children and adults tongue or lip-tie can effect proper tooth alignment, problems with speech or swallowing.
Frenectomies are often performed in advance of dental orthodontics or even for patients undergoing denture treatment in order to get a proper fit.
Preparing correctly for a frenectomy can improve the procedure outcomes and the healing times. Combining orofacial myofunctional therapy along with the procedure helps to create new neuromuscular patterns for proper oral function.
Heidi has performed hundreds of frenectomies with dentists ENTS’s and oral surgeons specific for myofuncitonal disorders and therapy.
