Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy

Total Speech Therapy strives to improve oral and facial function. Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) corrects muscular function issues that affect dental occlusion, facial form, chewing, swallowing, and tongue, lip, and jaw resting positions. Remember that not everyone with a tongue push has speech difficulty, and vice versa. We customize our therapy to your needs.

Understanding Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMD)

Orofacial myofunctional disorders impact tongue, lip, and resting posture motions and can compromise oral and facial health. These illnesses can cause dental malocclusions and jaw growth issues. The most frequent OMDs are forward rest posture of the tongue, open mouth rest posture of the lips, tongue thrusting, and thumb/finger/tongue sucking, which can all result in abnormal dental conditions and may also affect facial appearance. Airway and tethered oral tissue concerns are also included in OMD treatment. Treatment for an OMD is very intensive and requires practice multiple times a day and while eating.

In addition to these primary OMDs, we also address concerns related to the airway and tethered oral tissue. It’s crucial to understand that early intervention and effective treatment for OMDs can prevent many potential complications and ensure healthier and more harmonious oral and facial development.
