Join us on Wednesday, January 24th at 5:30pm for an introduction to Myofunctional Therapy. In this workshop, Krystal Finchum, the practice’s Myofunctional Therapist, will discuss what Myo is and ways everyone can experience its benefits.

What is Myofunctional Therapy?

When children develop improper orofacial posture, it can affect their health in various ways as they grow, including:

  • Inadequate facial skeletal development
  • Difficulties chewing and swallowing
  • Speech impediment
  • Misaligned jaw and teeth
  • Mouth breathing
  • TMD

Do you or your child snore at night or have trouble sleeping? Do you experience chronic congestion, mouth breathing or persistent oral health issues? If so, you might benefit from myofunctional therapy.

Krystal provides non-invasive therapy to those who suffer from disorders of the face and mouth. Myofunctional Therapy is essentially physical therapy for the tongue, lips, cheeks, and proper nasal breathing. These disorders typically develop from the lack of normalized patterns which can cause long-term effects if left untreated.

Her completed coursework and background includes Dental Assisting and Dental Hygiene with extensive training from IAOM, Myobrace (Myofunctional Research Co), Dr. Steven Olmos (TMJ & Sleep), Dr. Zaghi (Functional Frenuloplasty), and Patrick McKeown (Buteyko Breathing).

She has been with the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre for over 8 years serving previously as the lead TMJ & Sleep Therapy Assistant, and now a Certified Myofunctional Therapist through the International Association of Orofacial Myology (IAOM).
