How important is it that I get my orofacial myology disorder treated?
Hi K, Thanks for coming to see us at our website. You ask a very important question and as with most things, there are a lot of questions I’d have to ask before giving you a good answer. Some orofacial myofunctional disorders for some people should be ignored for a period of time or maybe forever. For example, let’s say someone has a small lisp that doesn’t bother them at all and maybe a family member or dentist is bugging them about it. If their teeth are fine, they are eating ok, and quite okay with it, that might be someone who shouldn’t bother taking therapy. Let’s say there’s another person with exactly the same minor symptoms, but this person personally feels bad or self-conscious about it….well, then that person should get help. Now I’ll toss out some questions, K, and try to help out when you get back with me:
- Who told you that you have an orofacial myology disorder?
- What are the symptoms you have?
- What do you think about your situation?
Once I have a better feel for your individual situation, I’ll be able to answer it first.
