What is Orofacial Myology?
Orofacial Myology is “the study and treatment of oral and facial muscles as they relate to speech, dentition, chewing/bolus collection, swallowing and overall mental and physical health.” – S.R. Holtzman
As an Orofacial Myologist and RDH servicing clients throughout Toronto, Vaughan, and the surrounding GTA, Pina Mazza can assess and help in the treatment of:
- Tongue Tie
- Tongue Thrust
- Thumb and Finger Sucking
- Open Lip Posture
- Mouth Breathing
- Open Bite
- Speech Problems
Orofacial Myologists such as Pina Mazza will assist in having the symptoms of these issues reduced. The goal of an Orofacial Myologist is therefore to stop thumb sucking, forming lisps, overall mouth posture, and more as they pertain to each client’s individual issue.
Orofacial Myologists collaborate with other health care professionals such as Pediatric doctors, Speech Pathologists, Orthodontists, and Ear, Nose, and Throat doctors to help children and adults achieve a healthy smile for a lifetime.
