Orofacial myofunctional therapy is an exercise program designed to correct the proper function of the tongue and facial muscles used at rest and for swallowing. These habits are hard to break, and successful therapy results can only be achieved by fully participating in a customized exercise program that is structured to meet the individual's needs. Therapy success is achieved by consistent daily exercises until the patient has subconsciously corrected their improper muscle pattern. This requires constant commitment by the patient, parental support and time. Treatment usually takes place over a 4- 12 month period, although length the length of the program may vary. Ideally weekly sessions for 2 months, followed by bi weekly maintenance, for 3 months, and additional monthly sessions make up the entire program. Therapy varies per individual needs. Mini programs addressing certain specific issues are also available. Habit cessation can also be achieved with the proper therapy, and willingness of the patient. Many orofacial myofunctional disorders can lead to an abnormal bite. And, orthodontics will be necessary to reposition dental problems that have already occurred. Proper swallowing patterns, establishing a normal tongue resting posture, along with proper lip seal and nasal breathing can assist with stabilization of the teeth during and/or after orthodontic treatment.
