Myofunctional therapy may sound like a tongue-twister, but it's a popular therapy that treats various myofunctional disorders for patients of any age.
At Northwest Arkansas Family Dental, we understand the importance of patient education, especially regarding your health and well-being. Myofunctional therapy isn't just for children: many adults can happily benefit from it as well.
The Benefits of Myofunctional Therapy for Adults
Patients at our Fayetteville, AR dental office may be surprised at how easy and gentle myofunctional therapy can be. You can perform exercises in the time it takes to watch TV, cook, run an errand, and more. It's important to maintain consistency, and many patients can see results in as little as six months.
Adult patients who have always wanted to correct their crooked or overcrowded teeth may find that myofunctional therapy can aid their orthodontic treatment by making their cheek and jaw muscles stronger. This opens the possibility of clear plastic aligners instead of traditional metal braces.
Another advantage is a good night's rest! Sleep apnea is a common and often severe sleep disorder that affects millions of adults. Myofunctional therapy can address sleep apnea by strengthening your tongue, mouth, and muscles that collapse during sleep.
Are You Ready to See Improvement?
