Myofunctional Therapists  

Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) is similar to physical therapy in that it is a technique used to correct  myofunctional impairment that is leading to improper function of the mouth, tongue, muscles and airway. There are  many different types of myofunctional impairment so the therapy process is different for everyone. OMT uses a series  of exercises and stretches but also evaluates and manages the impact of certain anatomical inefficiencies. Since  everyone is different, the amount of time it takes to get results varies. The goals of OMT are to correct habits that  have led to developmental and functional disorders. This includes tongue posture (tongue tie and/or tongue thrust),  mouth breathing, poor airway function (snoring, sleep apnea symptoms), thumb or finger sucking along with other  toxic oral habits (nail biting, pacifier use, etc), grinding (bruxism), improper chewing and swallowing, and orthodontic  concerns (before, during and after orthodontic treatment).
