Tongue Ties
Did you know there are 4 levels of tongue ties? What functional restrictions does your tie cause?
Orofacial Myofunctional  Therapsits help with classifying the restriction and identify what functional restrictions it is inhibiting.
If a frenum release is necessary to restore proper function, your therapist will work with you before and after your release to aid in proper healing  and obtain proper muscle function
Mouth Breathing
Mouth breathing can have adverse affects on the whole body and affect brain development in children. Finding the cause  and treating it is the first step, then the retraining process can start.
Tongue Thrust Swallowing
Are you aware there is an incorrect way to swallow? Improper swallowing is a symptom of a muscle dysfunction in the mouth.
Addressing those dysfunctions can alleviate problems such as teeth movement, TMD issues, digestion concerns and more.

Orofacial Myofunctional therapy addresses both of these issues.
