Enhance Your Oral Health with Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy

Therapy that aims to support your goals!


Proper positioning of the face, mouth, and tongue muscles is essential for speaking, eating, and breathing. Myofunctional therapy aids individuals of all ages with orofacial myofunctional disorders (OMDs), such as tongue thrusting, to improve their efficiency in these activities.

For those with OMDs, myofunctional therapy incorporates various exercises aimed at correcting bite issues, enhancing breathing, and improving poor facial rest posture. This training targets the soft tissues of the orofacial complex— including the face, neck, and mouth—to achieve optimal tongue position and posture for oral relaxation. Treatment is customized based on age and specific symptoms, benefiting clients across all age groups.

Additionally, myofunctional therapy supports both pre- and post-surgical cases by preparing the orofacial muscles for surgery and aiding in recovery, ensuring better outcomes and expedited healing.

  1. A person who never uses their nose and constantly breathes through their mouth.

  2. Lack of tongue movement.

  3. Current or History of messy or challenging eating.
