I have now had four months of oral myofunctional therapy, and it has made a world of difference. I can now close my lips without significant straining in my chin muscles. The left side of my tongue is no longer soft but now has muscles similar to those on the right side of my tongue. I now know where to put my tongue in my mouth when it is resting! Two of my molars appear to be getting close to touching again, which is very exciting.
The hardest thing about this therapy is practice. I’m supposed to practice three times a day, but sometimes it’s hard to fit it in.
