What is orofacial myofunctional therapy?
 

OMT is like physical therapy for the tongue, mouth, and whole face. It also helps in the cessation of negative oral habits like thumb and finger sucking

What are the goals of OMT?

Every patient is given an individual exercise program with these 4 goals for better health in mind 

What is a tongue tie and how is it treated?

Having a tongue tie means the tongue is attached to the floor of the mouth. This can have a negative impact on our mouth, face, brain and physical body

Mouth breathing and what it really means

Breathing through the mouth is not a natural normal way to breath. Actually, it can have some serious side effects  

Sleep apnea and airway

Snoring is a sign you have a problem with your airway. If your airway is blocked your brain and heart are not getting any oxygen! 

My Approach

OMT is great because it focuses on treating the root cause of your symptoms. OMT is holistic and natural. There are no pills or band aids. We can work together and with your other health care providers to create function out of dysfunction and bring back your quality of life!

Temporomandibular joint disorder can not only be painful, but it can have many negative impacts on quality of life
