What is Myofunctional Therapy?

Myofunctional Therapy is a treatment approach used with people with Orofacial Myofunctional Disorder (OMD). Children, teenagers, and adults may suffer from OMDs. OMDS may interfere with normal growth and development of the muscles and bones of the face and mouth. OMDs may also interfere with how the muscles of the face and mouth are used for eating, talking, and breathing. People who have an OMD may also have problems with talking, swallowing, and breathing through their nose. Some people push out their tongue when they talk, drink, or eat. This is called tongue thrusting or fronting, and it is one type of OMD. read more >
