In other words, myofunctional therapy is a healthcare approach with goals to exercise your face, tongue, mouth and airway by a specially designed exercise program to allow for normal and health functions including swallowing, chewing, speaking and proper breathing. Myofunctional therapy is a safe and effective approach that uses neuromuscular re-education. So just like physical therapy for your other bodily muscles and systems, myofunctional therapy re-educates your chewing system for proper and normal function. These exercises teach your muscles, nerves, and brain how to function properly and in coordination with one another.
