My Myo Matters

Lip seal and lip ties

Shut your mouth and start breathing!

The correct lip seal is one of the four goals of orofacial myology. When we are breathing, the correct position is for the lips to be closed, front teeth slightly apart and the tongue resting on the roof of the mouth. Sealed lips are a sign that you are breathing through your nose unobstructed. 

Can OMT assist with lip ties?

A lip tie is very similar to a tongue tie. This is where the connective tissue that attaches to the gum (gingiva) and the lip is abnormal. We are born with this and it affects the oral and facial development.  

 

How can OMT help?

OMT complements the pre- and post-surgical procedures for a more comfortable recovery.
