What is Myofunctional Therapy?

Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy eliminates bad habits that cause problems such as:

Tongue thrust during rest or swallowing

Thumb, finger, or pacifier sucking habits

Open lip posture and mouth breathing

Habits that cause a problem are brought into awareness and healthy new habits are formed. 

Proper function is taught and practiced (using a series of exercises to strengthen and balance the muscles of the face, mouth and throat) until the new habit becomes possible, then probable. and finally a new, unconscious habit is formed.

Myofunctional Therapy helps those who have a treatable habit and are motivated to eliminate the habit and problems that go with it.
