If you or your child are experiencing any of the above symptoms, it is possible that you have orofacial myofunctional disorders. Fortunately, these disorders can be treated through myofunctional therapy, which can help restore proper oral function and improve oral wellness.
Improper tongue and facial posture can disrupt tongue function and the flow of saliva, which plays a vital role in fighting against plaque and bacteria. Acid reflux and mouth breathing are also common with OMDs. As a result, individuals diagnosed with OMDs have a higher risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease.
Exercises play a crucial role in correcting OMDs and can significantly improve obstructive sleep apnea. Both children and adults can perform these exercises to eliminate OMD disorders and achieve the desired results.
