When there is a disruption in the normal way our facial and oropharyngeal muscles work, then our body compensates. We begin to use atypical patterns. These compensations called “myofunctional disorders”. These disruptions can be, genetic, trauma, surgical, poor dental habits, speech patterns, chewing and swallowing patterns, abnormal dental eruption, detrimental oral habits (Finger or nail biting, lip licking, lip biting, jaw shifting) or air way issues (allergies, asthma, tonsils, snoring etc). Our compensations begin to take a toll on our body and then we get wear and discomfort. Orofacialmyology is the neuro-retraining of the body to use the correct muscles of the body, specifically the face and mouth, for speech, eating, drinking and breathing instead of compensations, using neuro training of the body to use the correct muscles efficiently, specifically.
