Research

The history of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) dates back to the 15th century, and gained interest in the 1900s from Orthodontists, but fell out of fashion due to fixed orthodontic appliances.   Since the 1960’s, there has been a gradual resurgence of practice within this field due to the growing awareness that the oral soft tissues, good muscles and tongue strength, have an influence not only on dental health, but in sleep, overall health and development, speech,​ digestion, posture are more! Research in the field of Myofunctional Therapy and Breathing Re-reduction are now simply (and rightly so) EXPLODING!!!
