Orofacial Myofunctional Treatment

What is orofacial myofunctional treatment?

To better understand what orofacial myofunctional therapy is:

  • ORO is oral or the mouth
  • FACIAL is the face
  • MYO means muscle
  • FUNCTIONAL means a specific, natural action or activity working properly
  • THERAPY is the process of rehabilitation

We work to correct the improper functioning of the tongue and face muscles and apply this to basic mouth functions which include:

  • Physiologic Rest Posture
  • Saliva swallowing
  • Chewing and swallowing food
  • Liquid swallows
  • Speech

Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMDs)
