or OMT, is intended to correct jaw alignment and underdevelopment, which can inhibit breathing and be quite painful for many. OMT has also been effective at treating other disorders related to the jaw, lips, or tongue, and that could impede normal, everyday activities, like chewing and sleep.
OMT, or Myofunctional therapy,
aims to target and treat issues affecting the jaw and other Temporomandibular disorders, or TMD. Some treatment modalities typically include exercises, therapeutic interventions, and aids, like oral appliances that correct the position of the jaw, lip, or tongue to improve movement, speech, comfort, and bite. The aim here is neuromuscular re-education and optimal function.
OMT has been shown effective for treating underlying causes of Sleep Apnea, and other sleep disordered breathing conditions, like snoring. Sleep Apnea
can be serious and could cause you to stop breathing repeatedly when you are asleep. The results? You snore loudly and wake feeling unrested and tired. Many people have Sleep Apnea and do not even know it! The best way to diagnose your Sleep Apnea is to seek out Sleep Doctors in Colorado Springs for further assessment.
If you have a snoring issue, or if you find that you frequently wake feeling tired, cranky, or unrested, talk to your doctor to find out if you could have Sleep Apnea- or other sleep disordered breathing condition.
At Breathing and Sleep Center of Colorado Springs, our goal is to diagnose and treat breathing and sleep disorders that are caused by underdeveloped jaws. We are specially trained and offer non-surgical approaches to improve sleep- and quality of life, too. We provide further information through Patient Education Meetings- and offer an online quiz
