Orofacial Myology

Orofacial Myology is a specialized professional discipline that evaluates and treats a variety of oral and facial (orofacial) muscles, (myo-) postural and functional disorders and oral habits that may disrupt normal dental development and also create cosmetic problems. The principals involved with the evaluation and treatment of orofacial Myofunctional disorders are based upon dental science tenets; however, orofacial Myofunctional therapy is not dental treatment. Myofunctional therapy can be basically described as correcting an oro-facial muscular unbalance, including correction of the position of the tongue at rest and during swallowing. Specific treatments involve establishing and stabilizing normal rest position of the tongue and lips, eliminating deviate (abnormal) oral habits and correcting swallowing patterns when tongue thrusting is involved. Improvements in appearance are observed during and following therapy.

  • Dental bite or may lead to deformation of the dental arches
  • Thumb and finger sucking
  • An open-mouth posture with lips apart
  • A forward rest posture of the tongue
  • Tongue thrusting during speaking and swallowing
