Myofunctional Therapy in Newtown, PA

What is Myofunctional Therapy?

Myofunctional Therapy helps promote healthy early childhood habits that can prevent issues like ear infections, speech difficulties, digestive problems, and seasonal allergies.

Without the ability to nasal breathe or lip seal, patients show a greater degree of plaque buildup, decay, and periodontal disease.

Without correct tongue posture or swallowing pattern, patients show relapse after years of orthodontic care.

The Four Goals of Myofunctional Therapy

  1. Nasal Breathing – all day and all night
  2. Lip Seal – all day and all night
  3. Correct Tongue Posture – all day and all night
  4. Correct Swallowing Pattern – all day and all night

This does not include times when you are eating, drinking and speaking.

If all of these goals are accomplished, proper dental and craniofacial development will take place in growing children.
