Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders
Disorders affecting the muscles and functions of the face and mouth are known as orofacial Myofunctional disorders (OMDs). OMDs may have an impact, both directly and indirectly. The majority of OMDs are due to insufficient regular nasal breathing or oral breathing.
Problems are due to Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders –
The tip and/or sides of the tongue press against or spread between the teeth when someone swallows improperly. This is known as a tongue thrust. An abnormal bite might result from an OMD.
Facial Appearance Problem
OMD affects the muscles of the face. The lips may seem dull and sluggish as a result of this. It can also cause a facial grimace by tightening the muscles in the cheekbones, chin, and lips.
Speech problems are common in people with OMD. An odd speech sound might be caused by improperly postured tongue and lip muscles. TMJ dysfunction, headaches, stomach discomfort, airway blockage, and other health problems can all be caused by improper mouth muscle activity.
Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy
The activities in orofacial Myofunctional therapy are easy and painless. When some facial muscles are working appropriately, other muscles will follow suit until the proper tongue and facial muscle sync are achieved.
