Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy is an individualized neuromuscular education program that involves re-patterning of the oral and facial muscles, to eliminate adaptive, harmful oral habits causing muscular concern. Successful myofunctional therapy is a partnership between the therapist, the client and client’s parent (if applicable), dedicated clients can achieve incredible results from their therapy. Your individualized myofunctional exercise program requires a considerable time commitment that is necessary to achieve effectiveness, successful therapy is very much dependent upon the client’s compliance and maintenance at home in addition to participation in office therapy.
The number of myofunctional therapy sessions varies based on each child’s individual needs, dedication to their OMT program and compliance at home. Generally, sessions are weekly or every other week, progressively 4-6 weeks apart. Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy may take between 3 to 12 months from start to finish.
