Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy
Your First Visit
Firstly we will sit with you and discuss your current and past health to assess if Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy is for you. If we decide it is then we will conduct a thorough Orofacial Myofunctional examination as well as Breathing, Swallowing and Speech examinations to determine the cause of your problems. We will also take dental and facial images. Video recordings are also obtained for swallowing examination. Upon completion of the evaluation, we will go through the findings and review any questions you may have. This information will be given in an easy way for you to understand. You will also be given information to take home about your unique situation.
We will let you know what we can do to help, how long it will take and how much it will cost.

A copy of the evaluaiton report with explained information will be emailed to you and sent to your doctor or doctors within 48 hours of the evaluation.
Allow 45 minutes for your treatment session within program. Treatment program is between 12-16 sessions in length.
