Habit-breaking appliances may sometimes be necessary to stop anything harmful from interfering with normal growth and development. Oral Myo functional therapy (Speech Therapy) may be needed if tongue thrusts are involved. Surgical correction of lip or tongue ties may be indicated to allow proper mobility of the muscles in and outside of the mouth. Dr Rob Pasch DDS MSc General Practitioner can assist and advise regarding the next steps.
The correct oral function involves proper muscle function, patent airways, absence of habit and syndrome. Dr Pasch may help in accessing the issue.
