What To Expect

Orofacial Myology focuses on the muscles of the mouth, face and throat. By strengthening weak muscles, learning proper function and making behavior and emotional modifications, improvements can be noticed in breathing, speaking, chewing and swallowing.

I align myself with the current philosophy of airway focused dentistry and orthodontics which advocates early intervention. This gives a child an opportunity to experience a healthier life because there is a balance between breathing and function of the mouth and body.

A Case Review of you, your child or grandchild helps me to determine the best course of therapy. I initially observe or inquire about the following situations:

  • Nose or Mouth breathing?
  • Resting position of the tongue?
  • Any tongue-tie present?
  • Are the lips naturally sealed?
  • Condition of the tonsils and adenoids
  • Sleeping patterns 
  • Previous orthodontic treatment or teeth relapsing
  • Head, Neck or Face Pain
  • Face shape and posture
  • Any oral habits   including, but are not limited to:
    • thumb or finger sucking
    • blanket or clothes sucking
    • lip sucking
    • lip licking
    • lip biting
    • lip pursing or tightening
    • soother or pacifier use
    • pen or pencil biting
    • nail biting
    • abnormal tongue rest posture
    • abnormal swallow
    • mouth breathing
    • overuse of facial muscles with chewing and swallowing
    • open mouth chewing
