Orofacial Myology is the study of muscle function, of the face, neck and mouth. An Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist, can provide exercises for training and proper placement, of the tongue, lips, cheeks, swallowing patterns, and proper breathing techniques.
Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMDs) are disorders of the muscles and functions of the face and mouth. OMDs may affect, directly and/or indirectly, breastfeeding, facial skeletal growth and development, chewing, swallowing, speech, occlusion, temporomandibular joint movement, TMJ pain, oral hygiene, stability of orthodontic treatment, facial aesthetics, difficulties in digesting food, airway obstruction, ADHD and other health issues.
Research has shown the myofunctional therapy may reduce the symptoms of sleep disorders, such as snoring, and mild to moderate OSA (obstructive sleep apnea)
I encourage your questions, and I'm excited to share my journey as a Myofunctional Therapist.
