Myofunctional Therapy

At RRS, we specialize in helping individuals strengthen the muscles of the mouth for eating, drinking, swallowing, and sleeping. Through a range of exercises, including tongue placement training, targeted tongue, lip, and jaw exercises, we enhance oral motor function. 

Myofunctional Therapy is used to correct the improper function of the tongue and facial muscles. We work alongside dentists and orthodontists in order to encourage the best outcome for our patients.

Individuals of all ages may experience Orofacial Myology Disorders (OMDs), which can affect normal growth and development of facial and oral muscles and bones. These disorders may impact essential functions such as eating, talking, breathing, and sleeping. We also provide oral habit elimination programs for habits like finger or thumb sucking and prolonged pacifier use.

Why Control Oral Habits? While thumb or finger sucking might seem harmless, prolonged habits can lead to dental and speech issues. Thumb sucking, for instance, can affect jaw growth and tooth alignment, leading to complications like a high narrow palate and speech problems. We can initiate therapy to reverse negative effects within a few weeks. Children who successfully break habits often experience improved appearance, clearer speech, and better dental health.
