Tip Tuesday: Myofunctional Therapy Part 3

Myofunctional Therapy: Part 3

This week, we will be focusing on the progression of dentofacial growth problems and recognizing the correct tongue position and muscles that myofunctional therapy targets to correct these concerns.

The Benefits of Myofunctional Therapy for Your Practice:

  • Increased case acceptance
  • Increased revenue potential
  • Improved patient compliance
  • Improved case management
  • Accelerated patient development
  • Accelerated case completion
  • Long-term success

When should patients start Myofunctional Therapy?

  • Early intervention is always best—especially with oral habits.
  • After and before a lingual frenectomy
  • Before, during, and/or after maxillary, mandibular, or palate expansion
  • Before and/or after orthodontic treatment

In several Myofunctional studies, treatment results included:

  • 50% AHI decrease in adults
  • 65% AHI decrease in children
  • Improvements in daytime sleepiness and snoring
