The way that you breathe, hold your tongue, and swallow can make a big difference in your appearance and to your health.
There are several problems that can be avoided or corrected by a myofunctional therapist. Just think of the benefit of seeing a dental hygienist regularly who is also looking for signs that could lead to the following:
- Abnormal bite – the improper alignment between the upper and lower teeth. This problem may lead to difficulties in biting, chewing, swallowing, and digesting of food.
- Facial Expression: A dull, sluggish appearance and full, weak lips develop when muscles aren’t operating normally.
- Constantly Parted Lips
- Speech Problems
Because a person swallows 500-1000 times a day, improper swallowing can cause a variety of problems. But it is actually the resting position of the tongue that does the most damage because it is more constant.
