MYOFUNCTIONAL THERAPY WORKS, BUT DON’T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

There are mounds of research that supports the use of myofunctional therapy for correcting tongue posture, treating sleep-disordered breathing and sleep apnea, and more.

Myofunctional therapy, which involves exercises to improve the function of the muscles in the mouth and face, has garnered research support for its effectiveness in addressing various oral and facial conditions. Studies have indicated its potential in treating issues like speech disorders, obstructive sleep apnea, and orofacial pain. Research has shown that myofunctional therapy can lead to improved muscle tone, increased tongue and lip coordination, and enhanced breathing patterns. Overall, the growing body of research suggests that myofunctional therapy holds promise as a complementary approach in managing a range of oral and facial concerns.

Upload Speed: Over 3 is good                                                                                                                                                                         The upload speed is important and  can messes up our call. If you find that your upload speed is low, it may be becasue you’re using a wi-fi instead of a hard wired, direct connection to your internet. You can try hooking your computer directly to the internet cable and NOT the wi-fi router in order to prevent trouble or delays with the appointment. You may need to turn your wi-fi off on your computer. You many need to buy a longer cord to connect from the modem to the computer.
