About Jaw Surgery Rehabilitation

"Avoid Relapse & Improper Muscle Function with Post-Op Treatment". 


If you had knee surgery, you would be recommended for physiotherapy to improve muscle function.  So why wouldn't it work the same way for the Jaw muscles? Myofuntional Therapy can improve your post-operative outcomes.


Jaw Surgery will change your bone structure and with that, the muscles of the jaw will also change. This causes your muscles of the jaw, tongue, chew and swallow, speech, and respiration to work in a new and unfamiliar way.

A relationship exists between the face and its orofacial muscle functions.  The structure allows the muscle function to be set in motion.  The muscle function will then be created on the boney structure.  A good functional dynamic clears for a harmonious relationship between the jaw and the muscles.

The desired occlusal balance and dental alignment are linked to muscular balance and functional orofacial symmetry.  If orofacial dyspraxia or difficulty with the control of the orofacial muscle movement is not corrected, there is an increased risk of delaying recovery or even causing a relapse.
