Our myofunctional therapy treatment process is designed to ensure that you receive personalized care and achieve the best possible results.
Step 1: Initial Consultation
Your journey begins with an initial consultation with one of our certified myofunctional therapists. During this appointment, we will:
- Listen to your concerns, goals, and any specific issues you’d like to address.
- Conduct a comprehensive assessment of your oral function, including breathing, chewing, swallowing, and speech patterns.
- Discuss the potential benefits of myofunctional therapy and answer any questions you may have.
Step 2: Personalized Treatment Plan
Based on the information gathered during your consultation, we will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and goals. Your treatment plan may include:
- Specific myofunctional exercises and techniques.
- Recommendations for improving oral habits and posture.
- Education about the connection between oral function and overall health.
Step 3: Therapy Sessions
Once your treatment plan is in place, you’ll begin regular myofunctional therapy sessions at our clinic. During these sessions, you can expect:
- Guidance and instruction from our experienced therapists.
- Hands-on exercises to improve muscle function and oral habits.
- Progress tracking to monitor your development.
The frequency and duration of your therapy sessions will be determined by your therapist, and they will be adjusted as needed based on your progress.

Our commitment to your success extends beyond therapy sessions. We provide ongoing support and guidance to help you:
- Practice exercises at home to reinforce what you’ve learned in therapy.
- Address any questions or concerns that arise during your journey.

Step 6: Progress Monitoring and Adjustments
Throughout your therapy, we closely monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan. Celebrating your achievements and addressing challenges are essential parts of your journey.
