Get Help Breaking Unhealthy Habits

Team up with a myofunctional therapist in Boise, ID

The mouth is comprised of muscles that are constantly working to help you breathe and swallow. If any of those muscles are weak or untrained, you might end up with maladaptive habits that can affect your eating and speaking abilities.
This problem, known as an orofacial myofunctional disorder (OMD), IS treatable. My OMT of Idaho is directed by a myofunctional therapist in Boise, ID that helps patients with several types of oral disorders. Our therapist can help you learn and practice techniques that will give you the power to strengthen and retrain your oral and facial muscles.

What are the symptoms of an OMD?

  • Difficulty chewing or breathing properly
  • Improper head and neck posture
  • Temporomandibular disorders
  • Periodontal disease
  • Speech problems
  • Sleep apnea

Our myofunctional therapist can collaborate with your primary physician and orthodontist to determine if you have an OMD and develop an effective path forward. Find out more by contacting us today.

 

We help patients of all ages

An OMD can be diagnosed in children as young as four years old, and myofunctional therapy can help these children develop proper oral habits as they grow. My OMT of Idaho can work with children to fix problems that might develop from habits like thumb sucking, teeth grinding or extended use of pacifiers or sippy cups.

If you're an adult suffering from an OMD, you can still see results. No one is too old to begin myofunctional therapy. Our therapist can work with you to change a lifetime of unhealthy habits.

Call us today to get started on a long-term solution to your orofacial myofunctional disorder (OMD).
