Myofunctional (Tongue Thrust) Issues
Orthodontists often refer some clients as part of their treatment process. Some clients push their tongue against or between their incisors when they swallow. When this swallowing pattern continues after completion of dental arch realignment, your orthodontist may determine that the tongue pressure will force teeth out of their new alignment. Our Myofunctional treatment includes an initial assessment to determine the extent of the problem and suitability/timing for treatment. The treatment process lasts from 8 to 10 weekly sessions (depending on the consistency of client practice between visits). After the final session, follow-up visits are scheduled from one to three months apart to ensure continuity.
