Myofunctional Therapy

The primary purpose of Myofunctional therapy is to establish a harmonious relationship between the muscles of the face (tongue, lips, cheeks, jaw) to allow for normal growth and development. Improper rest postures of the lips and tongue, incorrect swallowing patterns, or habits such as thumb sucking can cause abnormal changes to dental arches and tooth position.
Through a series of exercises, Myofunctional Therapy works with the orofacial muscles to improve function by creating balance.
