What is Myofunctional Orthodontics?
Myofunctional orthodontics is an approach to dental care that focuses on addressing the root causes of orthodontic issues by emphasizing the role of breathing disorders, muscle function and oral habits in shaping facial growth and dental development. Instead of just correcting misaligned teeth, it seeks to improve the overall function of the oral and facial muscles, promoting proper breathing, swallowing, and tongue posture. By targeting these underlying issues, myofunctional orthodontics provides long-lasting results and can lead to improved overall health and well-being.
