Welcome to My Victoria Dentist, your premier destination for professional myofunctional therapy services in Victoria. We specialize in providing comprehensive orofacial myofunctional therapy to address various issues related to oral function and overall health.

What Is Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy?


Oral myofunctional disorders (OMDs) are disorders of the oral and facial muscles and functions that affect oral rest posture. The three main causes are tongue-tie, mouth breathing, and oral habits. These improper functions can lead to a variety of issues, including speech disorders, breathing difficulties, and improper swallowing patterns. By addressing the underlying muscle imbalances and teaching proper oral habits, orofacial myofunctional therapy aims to improve oral function and promote better health and wellness.


At My Victoria Dentist, we understand the intricate relationship between oral function and overall health. We are trained to evaluate and address various orofacial myofunctional issues, helping you achieve lasting results and improved quality of life.


Speech disorders are often closely linked to orofacial Myofunctional issues. When the muscles of the face and mouth are not functioning correctly, it can impact speech production and clarity. 

Signs & Symptoms

Several signs and symptoms may indicate a need for orofacial myofunctional therapy. These may include:

Difficulty chewing or swallowing can lead to digestive issues and malnutrition if left untreated.

Speech difficulties include lisps, stuttering, or pronouncing certain sounds.

Thumb sucking or prolonged pacifier use beyond infancy, which can lead to dental malocclusions and orthodontic issues.

Tongue thrusting leads to dental misalignment and speech problems.

Jaw pain or tension can indicate temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders or muscle dysfunction.

Facial asymmetry may be caused by underlying muscle imbalances or improper oral habits.

If you or your child are experiencing any of these symptoms, it may be beneficial to undergo a comprehensive evaluation by us!


Our team takes a holistic approach to orofacial myofunctional therapy, considering the physical symptoms, underlying causes, and contributing factors. We work closely with you to understand your unique needs and goals, empowering you to participate actively in your treatment journey.

Mouth breathing can contribute to dry mouth, bad breath, and an increased chance of dental problems.

How Can Myofunctional Therapy Help?


Myofunctional therapy can address a wide range of issues, including:


  • Improper swallowing patterns can improve digestive function and reduce the risk of aspiration and choking.


  • Improving speech articulation and clarity allows you to communicate more effectively and confidently.


  • Enhancing facial muscle tone and symmetry produces a more balanced and harmonious facial appearance.


  • Alleviating jaw pain and tension, restoring comfort and function to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and surrounding muscles.


  • Proper breathing techniques can improve oxygenation, reduce snoring, and enhance respiratory health.


  • Preventing relapse following orthodontic treatment by addressing underlying muscle imbalances and promoting proper oral habits.


  • By targeting the underlying muscle imbalances and teaching proper oral habits, myofunctional therapy can significantly improve overall oral function and quality of life. We are here to provide compassionate care and personalized support every step of the way, ensuring you achieve the best possible outcomes.
