Improving breathing and jaw function through neuromuscular retraining
Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) is a neuromuscular retraining of all muscles in and around the mouth and throat.
OMT can improve:
prepare for tongue-tie surgery
improve the results of orthodontics
reduce the effects of seasonal allergies
reduce snoring and even sleep apnea
About Oral Therapy
This is my patient's before and after CBCT x-rays.
Myofunctional Therapy simplified
Are you anatomy nerd like me?
Want to understand more about why you need a neuromuscular appliance?
Want to understand the science behind a Day and Night Appliance (DNA), MRNA or Homeoblock expansion/growth appliance?
See below for my own videos explaining tongue function.
I usually work with patients one on one as each patient needs their own unique concerns addressed.
Two or Three in a Family
Family members often have very similar jaw issues and can be seen at the same time. If you have a family member (including a child) who wants to be seen with you and can meet with me at the same time I may give a discount.
"My neck doesn't feel nearly so tight as it did before. My jaw and ears feel better too I am excited to keep going!"
-at 7 weeks.
"I can swallow more easily, I don't feel like I am going to choke."
-after 8 weeks and tongue-tie release
I don't snore nearly as much as I did before, and my ribs don't hurt because my wife isn't poking me to wake up!"
-at 12 weeks
"I just finished a run and I breathed through my nose the whole time!"
-at 4 months
"My son's teeth are straighter!"

"My sleep tracker averaged 60/100,
