Myofunctional Disorders

Myofunctional Therapy

Myofunctional Therapy is the neuro-muscular re-education of the oral and facial muscles. It includes muscle exercises which retrain breathing through the nose, corrects a low tongue rest position, a frontal or lateral tongue thrust (perhaps a reverse swallow) and a variety of other habits linked to malocclusion. Myofunctional therapy is the key to positive growth patterns for the child with myofunctional disorders.
