Elmbrook Family Dental is now offering Myofunctional Therapy
WHAT IS MYOFUNCTIONAL THERAPY?
Myofunctional therapy uses a combination of physical exercises to improve breathing, bite, facial and body posture, mouth breathing, lip competence, swallowing (tongue thrust) and other orofacial myofunctional disorders (OMDs). The therapy targets the face, neck, and mouth’s soft tissues to reach optimal tongue position and oral rest posture, promote nasal breathing and correct swallow function.
WHY BE CONCERNED ABOUT OMDs?
Failure to address an OMD can result in long term mouth-breathing patterns that compromise overall health, impede further growth and development of the jaw, teeth, and facial structures and negatively impact the stability and function of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). OMDs can cause a variety of peripheral pain issues like chronic facial, neck and back pain. Along with headaches and sleep disordered breathing patterns.
Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy has helped thousands of individuals in dozens of countries. Studies have shown that therapy is 80-90% effective in correcting rest posture, swallowing and other oral functions, and that these corrections are retained years after completing therapy.
