About Orofacial Myology
Harmful oral habits (for example, mouth-breathing, thumb-sucking, and pacifier use), neurological deficiencies, developmental delays, hereditary predisposition and, or functional issues (such as tongue ties, lip ties, upper airway obstructions and weak muscle tone) can upset the correct development of children’s jaws because of poor oral and facial muscle functions.
Crooked teeth can present as any of these disturbances.
One of the first things many people notice first about you is your smile so it makes sense to have beautiful and healthy straight teeth.
It’s not all about straight teeth though. There are a number of factors that contribute to making the perfect smile including.
- Inability to bite the front teeth together (open bite)
- Gum disease
- Relapse of orthodontic treatment
