Myofunctional therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on correcting improper muscle function in the mouth and face, which can affect the growth and development of the teeth, jaws, and face. Therefore, at Grovedale dental clinic, when our dentists do orthodontics, there is a lot of emphasis on myofunctional therapy as we would like our patients to have long term stable dentition and good looking face.
The therapy involves a series of exercises designed to improve tongue posture, breathing, swallowing,and other oral functions. By addressing the underlying muscle dysfunction, myofunctional therapy can help to improve the overall oral health and function of our patient, which can in turn help to support our orthodontic treatment at Geelong Family Dental.
Myobrace is a type of myofunctional appliance that is often used in conjunction with myofunctional therapy and orthodontic treatment. It is a pre-orthodontic appliance that is designed to address underlying muscle dysfunction and promote proper oral habits in children. It is typically worn for 1-2 hours each day and overnight while sleeping. It is designed to help retrain the muscles of the mouth and improve oral habits such as breathing, swallowing, and tongue posture. By promoting proper oral habits and addressing muscle dysfunction, the Myobrace appliance can help to improve the growth and development of the teeth, jaws, and face of all our patients at our Grovedale Dental clinic.
