Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy

Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) resembles physiotherapy but focuses specifically on the muscles of the face, mouth, and throat. These muscles play a crucial role in everyday functions such as breathing, chewing, swallowing, and speaking. When these muscles don’t function properly, it can lead to various issues, including mouth breathing, incorrect swallowing patterns, dental cavities, misaligned teeth, TMJ disorder (jaw pain), chronic headaches, neck and shoulder tension, speech issues, chronic ear infections, digestive issues, and snoring or sleep apnea.

Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) addresses these conditions by correcting muscle coordination and function through personalized therapy sessions. Therapists develop treatment plans that may include exercises to strengthen or relax specific muscle groups, techniques to promote proper swallowing and breathing patterns, and strategies to enhance speech clarity and overall oral function.

At [Your Clinic Name], our certified orofacial myofunctional therapists are committed to improving your oral health and overall well-being with evidence-based therapies. Whether you or your child are struggling with orofacial muscle function, our specialized approach can effectively address your concerns.

RDH  | Registered Dental Hygienist

Megan has been a Registered Dental Hygienist for 14 years, but has been in the dental field since 2005. She studied both Dental Assisting and Dental Hygiene at Fanshawe college. She has recently gone on to complete additional training in the field of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy through the International Association of Orofacial Myology and RDHU. Megan was inspired to continue her education after seeing patients continually return to her with chronic pain, only to have their symptoms addressed, rather than trying to uncover the underlying cause.

In her spare time, Megan enjoys playing baseball and spending time with her family. She is passionate about giving back to her community. Megan has coached ringette as well as girls softball and also sits on the executive for Exeter Minor Ball. Megan is excited to bring Myofunctional Therapy to our community and looks forward to helping children and adults improve their oral function.
