    If you think you ace the three critical oral postures I mention in my blog "Facial Meltdown," I thought I did too until long after I’d researched and written this material. That is, until I became more aware. That is why I know it is hard to grasp one’s need for myofunctional therapy as part of a collaborative approach, which could include osteopathy, cranio-sacral therapy, functional orthodontics, sleep dentistry, and/or ENT care. If you want a faster learning curve than I had about the possibilities you might need help, you may want to check out the "Do I need Myofunctional Therapy?" questionnaire on the home page of mouthmattersbook.com and this video.

          Being tongue-tied hampers more than just your ability to tie a cherry stem into a knot! Difficulties start from birth with a possible inability to nurse, thus pattern and tone facial muscles correctly. Later, it prevents your tongue from nestling as it should in the roof of your mouth and often, from swallowing correctly. This sets the scene for improper facial growth and development, tooth crowding, and possible apnea among a host of other major health problems. If your dentist or myofunctional therapist suggests a tongue-tie (lingual frenum) release, you must start activities such as those offered in this video immediately to optimize healing, and to prevent scarring and/or reattachment of your tongue to the floor of your mouth. Why not give it your best shot? [Learn more at: mouthmattersbook.com/2013/12/08/facial-meltdown-if-a-form-in-nature-isnt-beautiful-something-is-wrong/]

              http://www.osteopathyny.com - A lingual frenulum that inhibits the tongue (tongue tie) is a major contributor to pain, stiffness, and bad posture. Although little is know about this, Daniel Lopez, D.O. of Osteopathy New York, P.C. describes and demonstrates areas for specialists to evaluate that are affected by the tongue tie. A frenectomy, in the right settings, can provide very powerful pain relief unlike anything else.

                      Management of multiple frenum attachments in the oral cavity can be challenging using a scalpel and sutures. The WaterLase allows for minimal frenectomy and other soft tissue surgical procedures that were previously challenging to accomplish in a busy family practice. All these procedures were performed by clinicians on actual patients.
