Muscles of the tongue, lips, and jaw when used properly facilitate healthy arch development, straighten teeth for a natural smile, and improve overall appearance by facilitating healthy growth, and improve airway function. If airway function is compromised breathing habits may develop that compromise oxygen allocation to the brain, and other tissues.
Learning corrective habits support maintenance of healthy function of orofacial structures during the maturation process reducing likelihood of relapse. An assessment can determine if you are a candidate for om services. Learn about some of the indicators for orofacial myology services are provided here.
Proper oxygen allocation is essential during any phase of life for health physiological and psychological function. Our OM services can combine the learning of good breathing habit with orofacial myology for regulating oxygen allocation and effects on cognitive, physical, and emotional resilience.
Come to sessions in comfortable clothing with teeth brushed and flossed.
After an assessment is completed if you or your child is a candidate who could benefit from services learning tutorials are scheduled with your educator. Learning tutorials provide fun activities for correcting and eliminating specific orofacial habits that compromise growth, facial features, oral structure, and or reduce the likelihood of relapse such as during orthodontic care.
Inappropriate oral habits such as thumb and pacifier sucking, and muscle behaviors of the tongue, lips, jaw, and face can be corrected to improve healthy function and natural appearance. When compromising orofacial habits are not addressed changes can occur in muscles and structure which if left unattended can lead to a number of dysfunctional disorders and parafunctional habits.
Muscles of the tongue, lips, and jaw when used properly support arch development, straighten teeth for a natural smile, and improve breathing habits to support better oxygen allocation to the brain, tissues, and cells and support overall appearance. Oxygen allocation is important during any phase of life especially in early years of growth. Early years of growth setting the stage for corrective patterns that can support healthy maturation, especially of orofacial structures.
