Why Myofunctional Therapy
Myofunctional therapy is an emerging field on the cutting edge of oral health – research is only now beginning to show its true potential. Among other things, myofunctional therapy can be extremely powerful in helping orthodontics, dealing with tongue-ties, addressing TMD symptoms, and as part of a multidisciplinary approach to treating sleep apnea, UARS and other forms of sleep disordered breathing.
Becoming a myofunctional therapist is an incredibly inexpensive way to revamp your career. Consider the expenses involved in getting a masters degree or going to dental school for example, or even retraining in a totally new career.
Time is on your side. Because dental hygienists have such an extensive knowledge of the mouth, it is possible to become a practicing myofunctional therapist without spending years at school.
Learning myofunctional therapy doesn’t mean you have to give up being a dental hygienist. Instead, you’re becoming a more specialized hygienist, and you can use this skill as little or as much as you want. Basically, myofunctional therapy gives you more opportunities and more choices.
