What is Myofunctional Therapy?

Myofunctional therapy is a type of physical therapy that helps to train the muscles and structures of the face, neck and mouth to function properly so that eating, breathing, sleeping, speaking and one’s facial image is optimized. Training the muscles of the face to work properly through myofunctional therapy encourages muscle memory that will keep the teeth and jaw in alignment as the body continues to  grow and develop. It may even reduce the need for future orthodontics or oral surgery.
