Myofunctional Therapy Calgary
NEW Preventative therapy at LivingWell Dental!
Now introducing Myofunctional therapy!
This is not a photograph of Dr. Robertson's patient or a treatment.
Myofunctional therapy treatment is a neuromuscular re-education or repatterning of the oral and facial muscles. The treatment includes therapeutic facial and tongue exercises and behavior modification techniques to promote proper tongue posture. What exactly does that mean?
Simply put the tongue and face muscles play a critical role in headaches, neck tension, breathing, chewing, swallowing and poor habits (thumb sucking etc…).
Myofunctional therapy strengthens and repatterns these muscles into their natural posture. And proper posture alleviates pain and fosters optimal health.
Orofacial myofunctional therapy (OMT) is a profound technique that may be effective in managing symptoms and providing solutions associated with:
- Mild to moderate sleep apnea
- Poor digestion
- Misaligned teeth
- TMJD (Temporal Mandibular Joint Dysfunction)
Myofunctional therapy is useful in prevention for young children as well as rehabilitation in adults.
LivingWell Dental has developed a stepwise program of myofunctional therapy that is easy to understand and complete. The therapy is delivered over a 3 month period rehabilitating the oral and facial muscles.
