ABOUT OMD

What is Orofacial Myofunctional Disorder (OMD)?

An OMD may lead to an abnormal bite —the improper alignment between the
upper and lower teeth known as malocclusion.

This problem may lead to difficulties in biting, chewing, swallowing, and digesting of food.

Treatment for Orofacial Myofunctional Disorder — OMD

Careful diagnosis and special orthodontic appliances or braces will be needed to reposition dental problems that have already occurred.

An uncorrected OMD can undermine the stability of orthodontic correction, resulting in relapse.

Myofunctional Therapy at myORTHODONTIST helps you stop oral and facial habits that can change your appearance and affect your health.

HOW MYOFUNCTIONAL THERAPY CAN HELP

  • Fix breathing through your nose
  • Quit thumb-sucking, nail-biting, lip/cheek-chewing or other poor habits
  • Support head-neck-body posture
  • Prevent or correct Long Face Syndrome.
  • Establish a harmonious oral environment
  • Correct issues such as speech problems, sleep apnea, snoring, digestion, clenching/grinding and TMJ disorders
