Orofacial myofunctional therapy is an evidence and research based modality. Just like physical therapy helps to train our bodies back into shape from an injury, Myofunctional therapy helps to retrain the soft tissues of the face, neck, mouth to the optimal biological way and good muscle memory can keep the teeth and jaw in alignment. Myofunctional therapy is an important adjunct to numerous orofacial symptoms from CPAPs, surgical tongue-tie releases, mandibular advancements, and orthodontics (braces). Breathe Wellness Boutique teach patients functional modification techniques and exercises to promote good posture, proper tongue placement, continuous nasal breathing, chewing and swallowing.
The goal is cultivating awareness of the oral and facial muscles use and develop a therapy program that is right for you. When the tongue rests in the right place and the mouth stays closed, two things happen: bothersome symptoms can disappear and larger issues around breathing, braces, speech, jaw pain, sleep apnea or sleep disorder breathing become easier to treat.
Breathe Wellness Boutique knows how important it is to evaluate each patient’s specific symptoms and create an individualized custom treatment plan for the best possible result.
