CASE STUDY

My patient Annie’s experience with Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy:

Meet Annie

Annie was referred to my office by her dentist with issues of Open bite, TMJ, & Sleep and Airway. Annie, like most of my first time patients who have no clue about Myofunctional Therapy, was skeptical that any changes could be made because she was 60. After our full assessment, Annie began to understand the reasons why for the last 30 years she continued to wake up restless and why she had difficulty opening her mouth to bite into a sandwich. She would have to cut her sandwich into pieces prior just to bite into a simple burger. She just thought this was normal and that she didn’t get the right family genes. Annie decided to begin treatment if this would help her sleep better and help her achieve her personal goal of biting into a sandwich. She made a point she didn’t care about facial aesthetics. Although I reminded her that it would be a result of the therapy as well.


After our first session and Annie’s commitment to her customized treatment program, Annie began using the techniques taught on a weekly basis. She has completed three sessions with more to go to be able to achieve within functional limits in breathing and orofacial mobility and strength; however, in three short sessions, Annie was able to wake up a bit more rested, the increased tension she was experiencing around her TMJ had decreased, and by the third session she was able to open her mouth to bite into a sandwich. Also as an added bonus the crease lines around her mouth had decreased and facial changes began to occur. Now Annie is open to some of the additional recommendations that were made during her initial assessment. She has new goals to be able to wake up completely rested and run without losing her breath.
