Parents can often find the oral Myofunctional symptoms in their child at a very young age but may not be sure whom to ask help for. At this age, children are not eligible to get braces or intensive myofunctional therapy, but early detection can be helpful for the child in the future. This is why at NW Myofunctional Therapy, we offer the MiniMyo program in our clinic.
What Is the MiniMyo program?
MiniMyo program is designed for children between the age of 2 and 5. You can purchase the program as one session each or as a package of three or six sessions.
This program aims to educate and provide parents with the tools that can help their young children to address their oral Myofunctional symptoms at their early stage. It also includes exercises, as well as activities to improve their nasal breathing and proper oral rest posture. We make use of fun and engaging playful activities and keep the environment positive by making children involved.
Is This Program Beneficial for My Child?
Your child may benefit from this program if your child:
- Has mouth breathing or an open mouth posture, which are signs of potential airway problems.
- Got tonsils/adenoids removed
- Had a sleep test
- Has an issue with snoring
As the years pass, the child may face more and more problems, making it hard to treat their issues. So it is always better to start young so that their health issues can never interfere with their dreams. So don't wait till your child gets a bit older; you can get them treated now.
If you think your child might need this, feel free to call us or visit our clinic. We would be happy to answer all your questions.
