What is Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy?
OMT is a neuromuscular retraining of the mouth, jaw, tongue and throat muscles. You might think of it like mouth physical therapy.
You must be committed to doing the exercise given 3 times a day to see results.
We work with all the muscles of the head, neck, mouth, and throat. When some muscles are not doing their jobs, other muscles must compensate. This leads to disfunction. Disfunction of airway muscles leads to a closed airway which can lead to headaches. Disfunction of the tongue muscles leads to jaw strain and pain and/or crowded teeth or incorrect bite.
This is my patient's before and after CBCT x-rays.
