Swallow Right With Tongue Thrust Therapy

We re-educate the orofacial muscles to use proper chewing and swallowing patterns. We’ll break everything down into smaller steps, so it’s (literally) easier to digest.

Improve Lip Seal,
Eliminate Lip Incompetence,
& Promote Nasal Breathing

Our patients learn the importance of nasal breathing and eliminating mouth breathing. They strive to become nasal breathers.

With therapy, we often see that the lips become stronger and closed at rest, without strain.

Retrain Tongue Rest Posture

Orofacial myologists realize that tongue rest position is key to good speech, a proper swallow, and orthodontic success.  We provide gentle reminders, activities, and exercises to solidify a proper tongue rest position.

Restore Space Between the Upper & Lower Teeth At Rest

We’ll train you to restore the proper vertical space (freeway space) between your upper and lower jaws. We’ll also help you to address temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction by correcting muscle imbalances associated with the parafunctional habits, like bruxism/clenching/grinding.

Maximize Results With Pre- & Post-Surgical Care

We provide exercises and stretches prior to & following the release of restricted lingual frenum (tongue tie) in an effort to prevent scar tissue and reattachment that could affect the tongue mobility and function.

We can also help to maximize the results of orthognathic (jaw) surgery and reduce your chances of relapse with post-operative exercises, stretches, and stimulation.

Stop Drooling

For those with a drooling habit, we focus on general awareness as well as lip closure, cheek strength, and proper swallowing for saliva management.

Infant Services

We realize that there is a lack of support for parents with tongue tied infants.

That’s why we offer pre- & post- frenectomy stretches for infants and lactation counseling.

Craniosacral Therapy, TummyTime!™ method classes & infant massage classes will be available soon!
