How Can We Help?

Orofacial myofunctional therapy

Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT), involves the assessment and treatment of improper oral muscle function and habits that can impact speech, breathing, swallowing, and facial development. OMT is based on the understanding that the muscles of the face, mouth, and tongue play a significant role in the proper function of the oral and respiratory systems.

Tongue-tie
release

Tongue tie is a restriction of muscle and fascia which develops compensatory behavior in order to be able to function. This can impact a baby’s ability to breastfeed or bottle feed properly, causing feeding difficulties, poor weight gain, and even failure to thrive. As the child grows, a tongue tie can also impact their speech development, causing difficulties with articulation, pronunciation, and language comprehension.

Habit
elimination

Habit elimination therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on identifying and eliminating habits that may be detrimental to oral and facial muscle function. These habits may include thumb sucking,finger sucking, nail biting, pacifier use, and tongue thrust.
