What is Myofunctional Therapy?

Put simply, myofunctional therapy is a program used to correct the improper function of the tongue and facial muscles. It involves strengthening of the tongue and orofacial muscles by teaching individuals how to engage the muscles to the appropriate position.

Proper diagnosis allows for targeted and effective therapy exercises for oral posture retraining to promote better health with goals to improve breathing, reduce pain, and enhance quality of life.

Who can benefit from Myofunctional Therapy?

Myofunctional therapy may benefit those who suffer from a variety of ailments, including:

  • Sleep apnea
  • Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome
  • Thumb sucking
  • Tongue-tie
  • TMJ pain
  • Orthodontic and surgical relapse
  • Craniofacial growth and appearance concerns
  • Headaches and other facial and neck pain and tension
  • Tongue thrust

Myfunctional therapy works for all ages.

Although this type of therapy works best when started earlier in life with children and adolescents, adults also can benefit. Your body is always changing and remodeling itself—and myofunctional therapy capitalizes on the fact that your jawbones are among the most dynamic bones in the entire body. That means they’re more receptive to the forces released when performing myofunctional therapy.

Of all the treatment options available, myofunctional therapy is probably the least invasive, and builds the needed base for success if other treatment modalities are needed. My patients tell me that their health, happiness and appearance improve dramatically after treatment. Myofunctional therapy will have a huge impact on your life and whats even better is that the exercises are fun and don’t take too much time.
