Let's get your airway strong!

 Did you know that you can improve the strength and tone of your tongue and soft palate muscles as well as the throat? Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy helps restore normal function to the muscles of the face and mouth.  This may help with many issues including snoring and jaw muscle soreness. Think of it like physical therapy for the muscles of your mouth and face. Every time you speak, chew and swallow, you are using these muscles.  Bad habits can create a ripple effect of problems including poor teeth alignment and poor sleep quality.

 Can Myofunctional Therapy Help?

 Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMD's) are patterns involving oral and orofacial musculature that interfere with normal growth, development, or function of orofacial structures.   


The good news is that muscles can be strengthened and retrained with myofunctional therapy! 

Orofacial dysfunction symptoms:


daytime fatigue

open mouth breathing

speech difficulty

narrow palate

tongue restriction

reverse swallow/tongue thrust

crooked teeth

ear infections- children

dark circles under eyes

bloating/ cramping

TMJ problems

shoulder/back/neck pain

morning headaches

forward head posture

Dowager's hump

long face

receded jawline

thumb/finger sucking

*Some cases are complex and need more than one specialty involved for success.  These may include: Sleep doctors, Ear Nose and Throat Doctors, Orthodontists and other Dentists, Speech Language Pathologists, Physical Therapists, Craniosacral Therapists and Myofascial Therapists.

Mouth Breathing

We were meant to breathe through our noses.  It warms, filters, humidifies and cleans our air with nitric oxide.  There are many reasons people end up breathing through their mouth instead: enlarged tonsils and/or adenoids, allergies, asthma, deviated septum, nasal polyps, chronic congestion or a respiratory infection.  Chronic mouth breathing has been shown to affect your teeth position, bite, facial appearance and jaw.  It can be a root cause for many other problems including bad breath, dry mouth, cavities, gum disease and sleep problems.  It is my job to help get you to the right specialist if needed and help retrain your muscles and behavior so that you can breathe through your mouth.
