Orofacial Myofunctional Assessment

In our Altrincham clinic, we carry out a full assessment of orofacial myofunctional disorders, which will include a consultation exploring your history and symptoms, oral examination, measurements, photographs, observation of breathing, and assessment of speech sounds and swallowing. Following your appointment, we will provide a basic report of findings and recommendations, which may include onward referrals.

Myofunctional Therapy

Your first therapy session will take place in our clinic, and it may be necessary to visit the clinic midway through your therapy. All other sessions will take place online.

Sessions are initially weekly, and reduce in frequency once we enter the next phases of treatment.

 

Each session, you will be given a set of exercises to carry out at least twice daily, until your next appointment.
