Myofunctional Therapy

Do you want to stop snoring? Do you breathe through your mouth? Myofunctional therapy can help!

Did you know there is a proper place for your tongue to sit? Many patients have oral dysfunction that could cause poor swallowing, mouth breathing, and poor sleep.

Myofunctional therapy is a set of exercises like strength training for your lips and tongue. These exercises are designed to train your oral muscles for proper speaking, breathing, chewing and swallowing.

Myofunctional therapy might be right for you if:

  • Your teeth shifted after braces
