Although this type of therapy works best on children and adolescents, adults also can benefit. Your body is always changing and remodeling itself—and orofacial myofunctional therapy capitalizes on the fact that your jawbones are among the most dynamic bones in the entire body. That means they’re more receptive to the forces released when performing OMT.
Of all the treatment options available, OMT is probably the least invasive. In many cases, all we’re talking about is performing some simple exercises for a few minutes a day. You can often do these exercises anytime and anywhere you want.
