Myofunctional therapy is all about changing habits and strengthening muscles to improve the way we breathe, speak, chew and swallow. It’s possible to have life-changing results from a myofunctional therapy program, such as eliminating a mouth breathing habit or easing sleep apnea symptoms, but it’s worth bearing in mind that every patient is different.
Just like a physical therapist, the Faceology therapists teach our patients exercises. And just like physical therapy, some patients will need more exercises over a longer period of time, while others are fine with shorter treatment programs.
There’s a perception out there that all myofunctional therapy programs are a year-long, but I’ve been doing this long enough to know that many patients get amazing results from fewer sessions. It all depends on the individual patient’s presentation and symptoms. For example, a seven-year-old girl with a thumb-sucking habit will require a vastly different treatment plan than a 36-year-old male who has been diagnosed with sleep apnea.
Which is why Faceology offers a wide variety of myofunctional therapy treatment plans ranging in price and duration, all of which are tailored specifically to your unique needs.
