Assessing & Correcting Breathing & Orofacial Muscle Dysfunction for Ages 5 & Up
What Are Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders?
Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMDs) are dysfunctions such as mouth breathing, snoring, teeth grinding, improper tongue rest or swallow or sucking habit. Over time, OMDs can cause crooked teeth, TMJ pain & dysfunction, sleep disorders, difficulty chewing, weak lips & cosmetic problems. OMDs are often correlated with neck & back problems. Breathing pattern disorders affect the ability to relax, to oxygenate the body & to have restful & rejuvenating sleep.
