Orofacial myofunctional therapy (OMT) is a modality of treatment for children and adults with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
OSA is a serious condition. An obstructed occurs in the airflow through the upper respiratory system. This makes breathing extremely difficult. Children and adults who suffer from untreated OSA can have many associated health problems such as high blood pressure, memory problems, heart problems, strokes, and increases insulin resistance.
Orofacial myofunctional therapy helps to promote changes in the musculature of the upper airways.
