Myofunctional Therapy

Northstar Dental is proud to now offer Myofunctional Therapy to our patients. MFT uses highly effective physical therapy exercises to improve breathing, bite, and orofacial Posture.

Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMDs)

affect the functions and muscles of the mouth and face. OMDs can cause a variety of effects either directly or indirectly. From problems breastfeeding, stunted facial skeletal growth and development, disordered chewing, swallowing, speech impediments, joint movement/disorders, poor oral hygiene, stability of orthodontic treatment, facial esthetics, and more. Many people mouth-breathe more than they should. As a result, the muscles and the orofacial functions tend to adapt to a disordered breathing pattern, which in turn creates many OMDs.
