Myofunctional Treatment

Lakeside Family Dental
 Myofunctional Orthodontics

Does your child need more sleep and/or feel tired throughout the day?

Does your child snore or grind their teeth at night?

Do you notice strange eating/swallowing habits or mouth-breathing?

These issues can sometimes be attributed to improper breathing & oral habits, affecting facial growth and dental development which can cause long term issues.
Myofunctional Treatment can address these issues.

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.

We encourage you to book a Myofunctional Assessment with Dr. Cohen at our Burlington dental office.
