Breathe, Sleep, And Smile Better With Myofunctional Therapy

Myofunctional therapy offers a holistic approach to improving health and wellness at Skyview Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Aurora, ON. It consists of a series of exercises focused on breathing, swallowing, and speech, offering a non-invasive solution to a range of conditions.

What is myofunctional therapy?

Myofunctional therapy targets the muscles of the mouth and face to improve their function. The therapy is grounded in exercises tailored to strengthen, tone, and coordinate the orofacial muscles. These exercises are designed to correct the resting position of the tongue and improve the way it moves during activities like swallowing and speaking. This retraining can lead to better breathing patterns, more restful sleep, and even improvements in posture and facial aesthetics.

How does myofunctional therapy work?

Myofunctional therapy works by addressing the root cause of various conditions. For instance, improper tongue posture can lead to mouth breathing, associated with sleep apnea, snoring, and even dental health issues like misaligned teeth. By correcting these foundational problems, the therapy not only treats the symptoms but also the underlying causes, leading to long-lasting benefits.

Who can benefit from myofunctional therapy?

The therapy is versatile, aiding a wide range of individuals. Children with developmental issues related to speech, swallowing, or dental alignment can see improvements. Adults suffering from sleep apnea, snoring, TMJ disorders, or even posture-related problems can also find relief. Furthermore, individuals recovering from neurological conditions or injuries affecting facial muscles can benefit from the rehabilitative aspects of myofunctional therapy.
