Therapy Can Help!

Therapy can help with problems related to disorders of the muscles and functions of the face and mouth, also known as OMDs (Orofacial  Myofunctional Disorders):

tongue thrusts

A tongue-thrust is the most common Orofacial Myofunctional Disorder (OMD). It occurs when the tongue thrusts forward during the oral swallow.

Tongue Tie Issues

Tongue-tie issues are the most under-diagnosed OMDs and can affect oral tongue placement and oral swallow.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Mild to moderate sleep apnea can affect long term health in adults and lead to other serious health problems. Therapy helps the tongue rest properly in your mouth.

Malocclusion-Orthodontic-Relapse
Maintaining teeth in their corrected positions following orthodontic treatment can be extremely challenging without proper tongue and lip posture.
Thumb Sucking

Eliminating oral habits such as thumb sucking, cheek, nail, or cuticle  biting, and more teaches you how to stop.

Treatment of temperomandibular joint dysfunction, TMJ, related to orofacial myofunctional disorders.

Lip Incompetence

Orthodontists call the inability to bring one’s lips together “lip incompetence”. Lip incompetence doesn’t only have negative cosmetic consequences. It can also lead to excessive drooling.

Enlarged Tonsils can be another cause of improper oral swallowing and mouth breathing.

Tongue Posture

Snoring can affect long term health in adults and lead to other serious health problems. Therapy helps the tongue rest properly in your mouth.
