Why do Orofacial Myofunctional therapy for orthodontics, jaw surgery, & airway dentistry treatment?

I just don't get it... Why do I need orofacial myofunctional therapy?


I'm already working with an:

  • orthodontist

  • oral surgeon

  • airway dentist

  • ENT

  • Allergist

  • Craniosacral Therapist

  • Physical Therapist

  • Sleep Neurologist

  • and more medical and dental professionals

Why do I need orofacial myofunctional therapy, if I've already had:

  • braces

  • jaw surgery

  • tonsillectomy, removal of tonsils

  • adenoidectomy, removal of adenoids

  • tongue tie surgery

  • deviated septum repair

  • speech therapy for sound or articulation therapy



Just came across this YouTube video with Nicole Goldfarb, Speech Pathologist and Board Certified Orofacial Myologist, I think this is a good video with more information about the "why" and the reason for rehabilitation of muscles in conjunction with medical and dental intervention.


Nicole answers questions:

  • Why is orofacial myofunctional therapy beneficial for me?

  • Why do I need a professional who is certified in orofacial myology

  • Why is the orofacial myofunctional evaluation so important?

  • Why is the tongue restriction so impactful to tongue posture?

  • Does air leak through your mouth when you use a CPAP?

  • What tool should my tongue tie release provider use?

  • Why do I have to do myofunctional therapy before and after a tongue tie release?

  • How does orofacial myofunctional therapy support sleep and airway?

  • When should I lip tape at night?

  • and so much more...

This is amazing... I want to improve my quality of life... How do I get started?...

Great! We're excited to be part of your journey...
