Myofunctional therapy takes time and commitment. There is no "magic pill" and correcting dysfunction takes time. We will work together to build new neuromuscular patterns and improve muscle function and coordination.

What to expect:

  • Therapy can be completed virtually via Zoom - this makes appointments convenient.

  • Our initial comprehensive examination will take about 90 minutes and most therapy sessions tend to last 30-45 minutes.

  • Time between appointments depends on where you are in your journey and may range from weekly appointments in the beginning to monthly meetings further along in treatment.

  • Success of myofunctional therapy is dependent on your commitment to preforming the prescribed exercises.

  • Depending on your specific needs additional referrals to collaborating providers may be recommended to achieve optimal outcomes.

Myofunctional therapy can be used to treat both adults and children!

Habit Elimination:

Together we can work to eliminate oral habits such as:

  • Thumb/finger sucking

  • Prolonged pacifier use

  • Nail biting

  • Lip biting

  • Pencil chewing

Why do these habits have to be eliminated? Oral habits may cause changes in facial growth over time and alter tooth position. These habits can also create problems with the orofacial muscles and lead to issues with chewing, swallowing, or even speech.
