A Central Texas dentist offers myofunctional therapy, an exercise program for face and tongue muscles, to his patients, reports The Independent.

A Myofunctional Therapist will work with patients, both children and adults, on simple, yet specific, exercises that will bring back the normal muscle tone that is missing in the face and tongue. This allows for normal nasal breathing and correct tongue position.

With that in mind, it makes sense that the therapy has been used around the world to treat numerous ailments, including orthodontic relapse, mouth breathing, long face syndrome, and sleep-disorder breathing, amongst others.
