Q: Are some of the treatment approaches and methods more suitable for RDHs, DDSs, or SLPs? A: No, orofacial myology treatment protocol is the same for all of those who have been trained in our courses. Since we do not delve deeply into areas outside of solid orofacial myology preparation in the 28 hour course,
Does a tongue thrust ever just “develop" after a client has been in braces for a period of time? Or it is more likely that the tongue thrust was present but just undetected until a certain time? Or would it depend upon the occlusion and other factors?
I started out using Garliner’s program, which sounds like the one you were introduced to. I used it in the 1970’s! It was great to get me started at that time, and frankly no one else had any satisfactory treatment program, so it was the only game in town. From that point, I began to incorporate everything I could learn and develop myself to cover a myriad of different types of patients that I felt come under the umbrella of orofacial myology.
I have a little girl who got her tonsils out and has returned to me (5yrs)
doing therapy with her but noticed that she is not able to say "H". I have her pretend to do katate and punch her arms out and go
'huh' as karate people do! Any more ideas?
i just want to know some ways to help me stop sucking on my tongue and my family from it to. i do have allergies and my tonsils are not swollen but my allergies are only seasonal. Even when I’m not experiencing any allergies symptoms i still tend to suck on my tongue. Please help, it bothers me so bad, there are some days when it gets really bad and I have to chew on gum to stop myself from sucking on my tongue because it starts to hurt my jaw.
I noticed as well that I tend to keep my mouth partially open when I get distracted. I was researching the internet and I saw a video and found the website.
I think your kit could be a good idea. Is it possible to do it on my own, just from the manual?
Surgeons tend to look at the anatomy and then predict what problems are the result of what they see, rather than actually measuring airflow, as is done in most cleft palate clinics. The anatomy is not a good guide to predict the physiology involved...
