How We Help with Sleep and CPAP Use

Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) is a type of therapy that focuses on improving the function of the muscles in the mouth and face. It can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including sleep apnea, snoring, and difficulty swallowing.

 

OMT can help to improve sleep by strengthening the muscles that keep the airway open during sleep. This can reduce the number of times that the airway collapses, which can lead to sleep apnea. OMT can also help to improve nasal breathing, which can further reduce the risk of sleep apnea and snoring.

OMT can also help to improve CPAP tolerance by strengthening the muscles that support the CPAP mask. This can help to reduce the mask's pressure and make it more comfortable to wear.

OMT is a non-invasive and drug-free therapy, and it is generally considered to be safe. However, it is important to find a qualified MFT therapist to ensure that you are receiving the correct treatment.

Here are some specific examples of how MFT can help with sleep, snoring, and improving CPAP tolerance:

  • Sleep: OMT exercises can help to strengthen the tongue and soft palate muscles, which can keep the airway open during sleep. This can reduce the number of times that the airway collapses, which can lead to sleep apnea. OMT can also help to improve nasal breathing, which can further reduce the risk of sleep apnea and snoring.

  • Snoring: OMT exercises can help to reduce snoring by strengthening the muscles in the mouth and throat. This can help to prevent the soft tissues from collapsing and vibrating, which is what causes snoring.

  • CPAP tolerance: OMT exercises can help to strengthen the muscles that support the CPAP mask. This can help to reduce the mask's pressure and make it more comfortable to wear. This can improve CPAP tolerance and increase the likelihood that people will stick with CPAP therapy.

If you are interested in learning more about how OMT can help you, please talk to a experienced Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist.

How We Help With TMJ

Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) can be a very effective treatment for TMJ disorder (TMD).

 

TMD is a condition that affects the temporomandibular joints, which are the joints that connect the jawbone to the skull. It can cause a variety of symptoms, including pain in the jaw, face, and neck; headaches; earaches; and difficulty chewing and swallowing.

OMT is a type of therapy that focuses on the muscles and functions of the mouth and face. A myofunctional therapist can teach you exercises to strengthen and retrain the muscles that control your tongue, lips, cheeks, and jaw. This can help to improve the alignment of your jaw and reduce the strain on your TMJ joints.

OMT can also help to correct bad oral habits, such as tongue thrusting and mouth breathing, which can contribute to TMD. It can also teach you how to relax your jaw muscles and reduce stress, which can also help to relieve TMD symptoms.

OMT is a non-invasive and holistic approach to treating TMD. It is often used in conjunction with other treatments, such as orthodontics, oral surgery, and physical therapy. However, OMT can also be effective on its own.

Here are some of the benefits of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy for TMJ:

  • Reduces pain and inflammation in the jaw, face, and neck

  • Improves jaw function and range of motion

  • Reduces headaches and earaches

  • Improves swallowing and chewing

  • Corrects bad oral habits

  • Reduces stress and tension in the jaw muscles

If you are experiencing symptoms of TMJ, talk to your dentist or doctor about whether OMT may be right for you.
