Orofacial myology involves looking at the orofacial muscular complex (muscle and bone that make up, support, and move the head and face) during rest, breathing, chewing, preparation for swallowing, swallowing, and speaking. It assesses how all muscles and bone movements work together to create optimal function, diagnoses disorder within resting posture and within movements of these features, and identifies a hierarchy of treatment to restore adequate function for optimal breathing, movement, and orofacial development.
The International Association of Orofacial Myology (IAOM), the non-profit organization that acts as the certifying body for orofacial myologists, defines Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders as “atypical, adaptive patterns that emerge in the absence of normalized patterns within the orofacial complex. The regular presence of these adaptive movements can often result in a variety of disturbances.”
