Improve Oral Function and Overall Health

By improving these functions, we can help alleviate a range of problems and enhance your quality of life.

Our Services

Orofacial Pain and Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD): If you experience pain or discomfort in your jaw, face, or neck, it could be related to TMD. Our therapy focuses on relieving pain, improving jaw function, and addressing underlying causes.

Mouth Breathing: Chronic mouth breathing can lead to various health issues, including dental problems, sleep disturbances, and facial development concerns. Our therapy helps encourage nasal breathing, promoting better oral and overall health.

Thumb/Finger and Dummy Sucking Habits: Prolonged sucking habits can affect the development of your child's teeth and jaws. We offer gentle and effective strategies to help break these habits and support proper oral development.

Tongue Thrust: Incorrect tongue posture and swallowing patterns can lead to dental misalignment and speech issues. Our therapy aims to retrain the tongue to rest and function correctly, preventing further complications.

Incorrect Tongue Rest-Posture/Swallowing Pattern: Proper tongue posture is essential for healthy oral function and facial development. We work to correct improper patterns, ensuring better oral health and preventing future problems.
