The Academy of OralFacial MyoFunctional Therapy indicates that Oralfacial Myofunctional Disorders are disorders of the muscles and functions of the face and mouth. Oral Myofunctional Disorders may affect, directly and/or indirectly, breastfeeding, facial skeletal growth and development, chewing, swallowing, speech, occlusion, temporomandibular joint movement, oral hygiene, the stability of orthodontic treatment, facial appearance/aesthetics, and more. Most OMDs originate with insufficient habitual nasal breathing or with oral breathing.
We all love our children and want the very best for them, but an astounding 75% of children develop crowded teeth and incorrect jaw alignment which results in varying physical facial disorders and negatively impact’s the child’s appearance.
